|THE ANSWER: Chinese
Red Poinsettia on Latticinio Ground, concave bottom, c.1930.
Certainly a high quality example, the latticinio ground makes this
look even better. However, the flower is the same as in the other
two red Chinese poinsettias on the tutorial page.
Key points worth keeping in mind:

Center millefiori cane is a typical Chinese cane found in signed Chinese
scrambles and patterned millefiori weights
Latticinio is cruder than French or American examples, more sugary in
color and texture
Glass is not crystal clear as other antiques are
Although the ground concave bottom is rarer, it is not perfectly done
like a French or American antique
Although the flower is "Sandwich style", a latticnio ground is rare
or non-existent with Sandwich weights
