two more pictures:

This weight is more round than it looks, but when I resized the pictures, it flattened it a little.

Do any of you know anything about what this might be?  I'm going to buy it from a friend but would like to know something about it.  Thanks!

Hi,
Congrats, the pics work!  The hole makes it look like a candle holder rather than a paperweight or am I mistaken?
Kind regards

Hi,
Not sure, pic 7106 looks like a cone shaped hole in it BUT if it is a bubble it looks similar (but not the same) to ebay nr 220113237014   (please use the search boxes at the top of the page to go to this item).
Kind regards,
Karel

I agree fully it is flat and not concave, just saying that it looked similar...maybe a copy from the big C?
