Anything interesting?
« on: October 28, 2008, 09:36:09 PM »
I know precious little about paperweights (soooo different to the rest of glass then  ;)) - but thought this was a pretty little one!  It's quite small, about 2 inches across.  Is it anything good?

It's Chinese and it's an oldie from the 1930s or 40s.

A nice little find. I have a few of these in my collection.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
