Concave ground pontil and cut flat on base. Slightly frosted on pontil (i think)

:shock: That's not an apple!  It's got no stalk, it's got a sticky-out belly button!  :shock:

Picture of the base, please?   :wink:

The Mount Royal paperweights that i have seen have all had a cut base and no ground pontil. It does look very similar though.  :?
