    2 1/2" diameter
    Murano Mid 20th Century
    All the colors caught my eye's....just beautiful!
    Center has seven millefiori cane flowers- which in the center of one of them is an "X" where as the rest of them have an open center. Not sure if this means anything but just thought I would point that out.

    Some info I found online;
    Crown weight- paperweight with alternating lengths of vertically twisted colored ribbons and filigree extending from the base to the top of the dome, capped with a millefiori cane

    I found this and another at the GW yesterday.

      I would say Murano, and Super Find.

      See if I can get some more info -- just working in the yard here. SPRING!!

      The white "lace" bands are called "latticini", this may perhaps help :-)
      Lovely!
