Hi there, I picked up this lovely paperweight yesterday at a bootfair along with a gorgeous IOW one. No idea why I bought it, just cos it's pretty I guess & reminded me of a tigerlily. Can anyone tell me the maker please?. The photo of the impressed mark is as good as I can get it.
Thanks for any help

I suspect Guernsey Island Glass (the uk one).
Have a look at the discussion and photographs here.

If your mark is the same as this, that will confirm it.
Welcome to the board - and thanks for the nice clear images too!

Cheers, Sue (M)
