I have this listed as a Murano Lighter but I can't be sure of that. There are some things about this lighter that may lead to a different conclusion. The first is the lighter top itself. It looks to me like it uses Butane as opposed to the usual lighter fluid. When looking at the pontil on the bottom it is ground slightly concave as opposed to perfectly flat. Generally I see this on glass from eastern Europe. Last we have a silver lighter top.  Size it is about 3.25 high about 3 inches wide.   Condition: Glass on this is excellent. The lighter part moves smoothly and it actually sparks. Not sure it was ever used. There is some wear or tarnish to the edge of the metal top. Nothing serious. Age? I am going to say it is newer then the 60's just because of the butane. Maybe 70's some time.

I do have a lot of Murano lighters I have collected over the years I will be selling this summer. .......I have been collecting Art Glass for about 20 years. I used to live next to a large flea market and a couple big antique malls. So I would pick things up whenever I saw something that fit the collection or I thought was a good deal. I sold about 50 paperweights last summer and I am getting pushed to sell the rest as I am relocating.  Please check out my ebay store as I will be putting things up all summer. Thanks
