I assume you are all talking about properly marked millefiori weights by RB.  If not I have one of 50 - and I can't imagine that can be correct.

Funnily enough, I picked up this one recently, thinking it may be Scottish and it has very similar canes to your millefiori canes Keith... Brierley imported them from Murano didn't they? This may be an Italian weight, but it has a fire polished pontil rod mark not a flat polished base, which I would more expect from a Murano weight...

My understanding of the info in Bob Hall's book (see Reply #3) was that Royal Brierley had trouble with the compatibility of the Murano canes worked in their own glass mix ... meaning that Royal Brierley made the weights with millefiori canes sourced from Murano.

Mine has what looks like a polished pontil mark and is etched Royal Brierley, the canes are similar to your pwt Robert.
