Mark is not in Hartmann, a shot of the weight might help.

No idea about the mark. But from the pic, the canes and their setting seem to me to be Murano (as a first guess, that is).

I agree with Frank that a pic of the top of the weight (and also one of the profile view) could help.

The mark looks like it is sandblasted, not etched.

From what I can see of the canes from underneath, I would say Murano!
