Hi, anyone know where an who made this magnum paperweight? Murano springs to mind, but most glass seems to get this label when we know it is no. thanks

If the base is a rough matt texture, as it looks to be in the pic, rather than polished,
I would suspect it's a modern one.

I'm not seeing the quality for murano. I think it's made in China.

I have to agree with NaomiM, I also think it is Chinese in origin.

Thanks guys it could well be, that was my initial thought, so much gets sold as murano when it's not, interestingly though this hand blown example is 4" across and is hollow not something I have seen in a chinese example from the late 20thc onwards. Em
