Who made this paperweight?

I think it might be Murano and maybe by Toso?

The base has a large ground pontil.

Yes to Murano, but maker - Ferro & Lazzarini.

This is "Scorpio", from the Zodiac range which was and still is very popular. Mid 1970s to, at least, 1990.

[A similar weight was shown in the GMB recently but I can't find it. Might have got lost during the recent technical trouble we experienced?]

Hi KevH,

 Thanks for the right maker and the dates it was produced,
had a long run didn't it?

I am getting a bit better, one out of two isn't too bad   :)

( I'm a glass half full person  ;) )

Hi,

I was looking at some listings on Tradera and found this, another Zodiac range paperweight.
