Don't dismiss the idea that this weight might even be Chinese. Some of the early Chinese latticino is excellent. In fact, I bought a weight on ebay a while ago which both Ray and I thought was a Baccarat from the pictures, but which turned out to be Chinese.
The yellow latticino twists in your weight look quite similar to one of my Chinese 'upset muslin' ones, too.
A book I would recommend is 'Paperweights' by Sibylle Jargstorf, which covers a wide variety of weights, and Hollister's 'Encyclopedia of Glass Paperweights', while an old book now, is one I still find very useful. I'm afraid I don't know a book which would be best for Old English and European specifically, but there are many knowledgeable people here who may be able to tell you.
