I've seen an almost identical item but with yellow footsteps on a royal blue background.

I think I saw it for sale in a charity shop as part of a consignment of weights from China - as such probably produced in the late 90's.

A good indication would be the base - most of the modern chinese/taiwanese pieces are polished creating an opaque surface compared with the clear glass interior.

Your weight is very seasonal and I much prefer it to the one I saw!!!

I had a glass plaque that had this motif or very similar, it also carried this poem, maybe your weight has something to do with this ?

I am quite fond of that poem.

Lovely paperweight!
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

It is lovely, but does it have anything to do with the paperweight?
