Hello Gang:

Just got this on the weekend and the guy that sold it to me said it was American Glass maker -- I believed it to be murano.  But I thought I would grab it as it has some pink in it too -- and you know who I always see to fing pink Glass

The base does show quite a bit of wear.  Thank, any ideas on it?

Hello Rose,

most likely a Perthshire (Scotland) PP 4 concentric weight,
some have a P signature cane in the outer row,
made over a long period until ca. 1992,

hope this helps, cheers e.m.

Thank you SO much for your reply, knowledge and replying to my post.

I did Not figure it was "American" when I asked about it and thought I would buy it.  I think I have one other Perthshire weight here in my small collection.  I am still glad to have found it.  Plus being smaller - easier to find a space for it here as sometimes I feel my home "runneth-over" with glass and bigger murano pieces, and Czech vases. 

I recently bought that Cenedese Art glass bowl ( 16 pounds !!! ) and believe me that needs S P A C E .....LOL

Extra info:

With a clear ground, and without a star-cut centre to the base, the weight was made during the period 1972 and 1992.
