Is this as I suspect a generic Murano p.w. ?   No markings.
Slight iridescence with a pulled feather effect pattern topped off with a murrine. 
Its yellow interior makes it glow when placed in front of a light source.
TIA :)

Hi Anne,

Yes, I think you are right. These weights always looked Murano to me and the cane on top of yours is typical of Murano.

I have had the same design with and without a murano sticker.  My opinion is that it is indeed from Murano.
