No, it's neodymium that goes greenish or bluish from purple under low energy and fluorescent bulbs

That is manganese, not neodymium. In view of the turned down neck (very much the design vernacular of the tens) I vote for modern decorative glass from India. But as always, I may be wrong.  It happens, you know.
Could it be a 9291 catalogued at 4.5" maybe ?

Glass Paperweights / Re: Murano paperweight with very colourful canes - AVeM?

Thank you very much, Alan, Sophie!

Midcentury production seems very likely, then...

Wouldn't the fact that the same canes are found in many AVeM "Tutti Frutti" pieces, be a strong hint towards AVeM as maker?
Here is a vase with the "red cross centre surrounded by 4 dots cane":
Here a vase with the "5 multicolour dots in orange circle cane":

They caught my eye as soon as I walked through the door at the auction. I do like this kind of glass. Unfortunately my OH disagrees with me about having glass everywhere 😍 so I am limited as to what I put out on display for the time I have them.

Hi Anne,yes under a low energy light bulb it goes light green.

Does it change colour under different types of light, eg fluorescent, low energy, daylight, incadescent bulbs? If so it's neodymium glass, which might help pin down a maker for you.  See some examples here:
