Two abstract paperweights
« on: July 14, 2007, 02:52:58 PM »
One I'm fairly sure is Chinese (only 50p) but I would like confirmation that it is older rather than new. It has a frosted irregular bottom and slightly yellowish glass top bottom side

This I don't think is Chinese - shiny round bottom, slightly pinkish glass and you can feel rippling in the glass
top bottom side
Any ideas please?

I think the bottom one could be Portugese.

All the portugese paperweights I have seen (not very many) have had the same decor.
I have saved a picture of an almost identical one from a previous eBay auction,
complete with the label "Made in Portugal", but I cannot post that due to copyright.
 
Thanks.

I agree.  The second one is from Portugal.  I've had some in the past with labels.

Not sure about the first one, could be "Bohemian" - or more modern Czech.

Or might not be either :huh:
