No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Hi, I'm sorry nobody else has commented on your weight, so you get little old me  :oops:  :roll:

It has a look to me of either a Hyderobad or Bohemian.  Sorry I'm not expert enough to be more precise than that    :?

I would agree with Leni's view. But weights like this are often hard to pin down to a maker or even a region as lots were made in various countries. I wonder if it could conceivably be an older American (mid-west?) piece, but that is certainly an area I have little knowledge of.

I would like to see a couple of other pics, though:
- a full side view (not angled in any way)
- a base view, at a slight angle to highlight whatever finishing can be seen
