I bought this paperweight, as I liked the look and colours of the canes, to add to my small collection of paperweights, but I have no idea who made it and asking here.

I have no idea what country it is from, would be nice to know where it came from and who made it and how old it is also.

It has a flat polished base, I think they are called closepacks, but someone will correct me if I am wrong.

It is 65mm in diameter and about 48mm in height.

Hi

It is a fairly typical Murano closepack paperweight, from the second half of the 20th century.
