interesting Zanfirico candy cane ashtray?

A recent charity shop purchase that caught my eye. I know nothing about this type of glass and really need your help to identify this type of glass and possible manufacturer.  ???

Hi,
the technique is called Zanfirico and the dish looks to be from Murano.
Perhaps someone will be able to add more information re a possible manufacturer.

You´re welcome. Adding the dimensions of the piece and possibly a base shot might be helpful.
Perhaps a kind moderator could move this over to the Murano board and / or modify the title?  :-*
