The base has been ground flat. Do you think its Murano

if it is gold dust in the lateral decoration, yes it is Murano. If not, chances are you're looking at Belgian or Canadian glass.

Yes there are gold inclusions in the lateral decorations, any idea of age.

Ian, it's really hard to tell. This kind of style was made in the 1950s. However, they are still being made today.
