    About 3" in diameter. Completely unmarked. This is so well done, that I don't care if it turns out to be Made in China. The dark line in the center is actually made by the edge of the air bubble in the center of the flower. It took a lot of control to make this one. There is a central flower surrounded by air bubbles spaced around it. As mentioned there is also an air bubble in the center of the flower, maybe imitating a pistil, and splash of blue at the base, maybe meant to be water that the bloom is sitting in.

      Thinking this may be early St Clair Glass. It is similar to several of their controlled bubble pieces and it appears that not all of their work was marked.

      Thanks for the comment Newfld. It is really well done. I was a goner as soon as I saw it. I think I paid $1.99 plus tax for it.

      Thanks for the loves

      I found a very similar one this on ebay which the seller attributes to Murano. Sent them an email to see how they arrived at that identification.

      Thanks for the love worthit2!

      The ebay seller backed down on their identification of a similar paperweight being made by Murano when pressed for information about how it was credited to Murano. Back to square one.
