Another help please

I found a great box of millefiori weights at an estate sale, 20 of them, and I was lucky enough to pay $100 usd, (63 pounds approx.). All in great condition (though the Strathearn is a bit ragged).

There were 10 PMcD, 3 Murano, a large Perthshire, a mini Strathearn, 3 Deacons, and two I cannot identify.

This is the other one, 2 1/4" wide, and 1 1/2" high.

As always, any help is appreciated.

Murano without a doubt.  Someone else will roughly date it I am sure!

I bought a similar Murano piece new in a gift shop in southern France in the late 1990s (too naive to know better....  :D)
