I believe this is from Murano.

Hi John,

I agree this shares many characteristic with weights made in Murano but it has an interesting setup and the pastry mold canes are a bit unusual. How is the base finished?

Hello ,

  Thanks for the replies .    The base is flat and polished .     I have not seen something similar.   It came from a collection in Eastern Massachusetts close to the Pairpoint factory that included several Pairpoint paperweights and perfumes .  Because of the association I thought it may have been also been made at Pairpoint but usually Pairpoint colors are very muted and this is not.


Thanks ,

John
