I think this is Murano, but not sure. Opinions, please.

The three large canes look very Murano to me, but the smaller canes encircling them are causing doubts. It measures 3 1/4 inches in diameter, and 2 inches high. Flat, polished base. Also, is there a name for this design other than just millefiori?

Hi. I think Murano too - though the smaller canes do have a Chinese look about them.
