Hey all! Found this wonderful piece amongst some Murano Birds. I am not sure if it is Murano or it is another maker.

If you can help in any way, I'd really appreciate it!

Regards,

as it's moulded glass it makes me doubt very much that it's from Murano where most glass is blown.

Looks like the colour is on the outside, rather than all the way through. As bistoboy says, it looks cast, so the colour may have been laid down in powder form in the mould before the clear glass was poured over the top.
It may be Scandinavian or Dartington, or Czech or US, but probably not Murano.

Have you looked for acid etched marks on the top surface towards the edges of each, shall we call them, petals?

There's one on ebay listed as Walther glass, (Germany).

You'll occasionally see them with Walther labels and/or boxes saying they're from "Collection Siebenstern" - but this seems to have incorporated many different designs and styles, rather than being a coherent series.

You might occasionally find them under the same 'collection' name, but with Mikasa packaging. Mikasa are a distributor who rebranded Walther glass products.
