The glitterness is very pretty. Is that a sticker on the bottom?

It could be an 'essay' done by a student of glass.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

This kind of green glitter ground is common in bohemian weights I think.
But the grinding to the bottom and the shape of the dome points to Glasstrufflehunter's suggestion imho.
Or a quick frigger for a friend.

The ground is very nice, an interesting weight  :)
