I have just purchased this weight:http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7672
As a "Victorian? dump weight". It is about 4,5 inches or 12 cm heigh and has an elongated round hexagon shape. The top is about 3cm or just over one inch in width and the base is about 4,5 cm or almost 2 inches. Weight is about 800g which is heavy for the size. Glass is a smokey yellow colour.
As can be seen from pic above and the one below the top and base are both flat ground and polished.http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7674
Inside is a circle of green lampwork stems, the first inch has no decoration and after that the little flowers (appropriately millefiori cuttings) start. Flowers are orange, lite blue, yellow, dark blue, pink and white. and look like this:http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7673
(the long drawn out orange flower on the pic is due to distortion at the thickest point of glass).
When I first saw the pic on the web it shouted "Russian" at me for some reason, but having it in hand I am clueless.
Anybody know what it is?
Thanks and kind regards,
