The white ribbon pattern is reminiscent of Steuben, but Steuben stopped using color early on and only had clear glass, with some using white swirls; therefore, I'm not sure. It seems the base has a slight indentation from a production tool, and Steuben weights were flawless. But, that design screams Steuben and it is well-known that glassmakers at Steuben in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s were allowed to have "fun" after work.

yes, there is a flaw in the base, looks like a tool mark, or maybe a bubble.  

Lovely weight though, I find it very elegant and soothing to follow the threads around  :)

Interesting, I have never had a Steuben weight, another name to research now!
Thank you very much!

I have actually seen Chinese weights similar to this, although the base looks too clear for Chinese production, even with the little mark in it   :?  

Could be Murano :shock:  Could be quite a few things! :roll:  

Sorry I can't be more help with this one    :oops: :(
