Wow, this is gorgeous! Where did you find it? I live in a place (Victoria BC, Canada) where there are practically no paperweights of significance. The few antique shops here have a handful of recent (and outright ugly) Murano which they sell for $200 and up! Finding paperweights on eBay is effective, but not much fun...

Ray, that's a really good example. From the way the base is finished I don't thik it's from the Caithness years. How does it react under UV?

Ok - sounds like it's 70s. Nice to get one from that period that is 3 inch or bigger.
