It looks a lovely piece of glass iCollect, but it would be easier for us to help you if it were photographed on a white background so we can see details more clearly. 
When you have time, can you do that please?
If you can upload direct onto the site rather than through a link, it will mean the pictures are here for posterity and most probably help others in the future. Photobucket has a habit of vanishing after a while. :(

The glass itself doesn't look like Murano glass to me in the pictures. It is hard to judge on the background, though. I am leaning toward the other side of the ocean to West Virginia because of the color and resemblance to Murano.
