I have several pieces of this specific flower style.

The flowers are made up of what I call "splotches" of glass, instead of a solid petal.

I'm showing a yellow one, and a pink one, but I have them in multiple sizes and colors,but all have the "splotch petal" construction.

Would you suggest midcentury Murano, midcentury Chinese, Bohemian, maybe even (gasp) American?

As always, I appreciate any feedback.

One name for this style is "icepick flowers" because an icepick type tool is pushed down through the frit color patches.

I'd say more times than not this style would be American.  The yellow one looks more Indian.

The yellow one is not Indian.  Most likely it is American, possibly made by Gentile Glass in Star City, West Virginia.

I understand why one might think Indian (see image below of an Indian paperweight), but in my experience they always have 3 'spatter' flowers in their design.  The colours vary a lot - I have one with bits of aventurine even.
