There's a whole range of these out there with different coloured backgrounds (white, blue, pink, cream and yellow) and different shapes, and generally being sold as Murano. Occasionally they have a Snowflake brand label on them.

A search of the Board for "snowflake" will show various older threads mentioning Chinese items. For example, for design style / decorative similarities, see:
