This one is Scottish. Looks like Strathearn to me but I could be wrong. There are others on this board who will be able to be more specific.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

As with some others, it's either late Vasart or early Strathearn.

See my web page articles - or better still Richard More's - for more examples.
