Hi Don.

The central group, five spaced circles and garland is a common Saint-Louis pattern, but the canes look to be a very strong colour for Saint-Louis: they are more like some of the late 19th - early 20th century Baccarat and Baccarat Dupont colours.  But I do not recognise the canes as being from a specific factory.  Does the glass have as much cording / sugaring as the images suggest, or is it just how the pictures have turned out?

Alan good evening. Here are some new photos and hope they help. The glass is a bit streaky and there are some bits of debris at the millefiori /dome interface. Thank you for your help

Don

Hi Don.

Thanks for the additional images.  All things considered, I am going to vote for antique Saint-Louis from the 1845 - 1860 period.  Thewhite/blue/pink canes in the garland are very much their style, as is the design.

Alan.

If we are voting, then I will agree with Alan.  It is a typical St. Louis design, but often St. Louis will alternate between two colors (other than white) in the outer ring.  The alternating strong blue and white colors is unusual.

Thanks Allan and Alan...I will try and find another puzzler just to keep you both honed, but I suspect that it was an easy one once I put better photos up. Don
