Baccarat DuPont era.  Early 1900's, I think a fairly uncommon piece.

It is correct that there are also Murano weights with 1848 fake canes around, but these canes look different. The date canes looking like a Leibniz waterbiscuit are Dupont. Also the other canes are Dupont, not Murano.

oh forgot to ask, if this is Dupont then are these still collectable since this would mean that the bottle would date more likely 1930s so the date cane would be a fake ?

Depends on what you call "collectable": a rather similar one recently sold on ebay for US $650,00 (which I wouldn't pay - but someone did).

... so the date cane would be a fake ?

That's another point of discussion: some people defend this (usually in connection with Murano items) as "commemorative dates" (grandmother's year of birth and the like) ... to be honest: I call them fakes >:(.
