Hi,  Thanks in advance.

I have this 3 1/4 inch diameter weight and was wondering if the flower shaped cone is a recognized signature, or even a signature at all.

It seems that it was purposefully done but was it just a whim?

It's a Murano weight,  the cane is just a mishap.

Thanks,  I thought that might be the case.  At least it's a pretty mistake,  can't ask for much more.
