Hi guys,

Can anyone help with an ID for this paperweight please ~ it has a deep pink and white spiral in clear glass and the bottom is impressed with a VW (or WV!) monogram. It's about 2.5"/6.5cm in diameter. I've seen a discussion on this board about another item marked with VW but, from the description there, this mark seems different.

Thanks in anticipation, John.

At the top (between the "V arms") there will usually be two additional, small letters, indicating the artist.
