This paperweight was recently passed down to me. I know little, if anything, about paperweights but I fell in love w/ this stunning piece.
It has 6 oval faceted sides and measures about 7.5 cm across and 6 cm tall. Under magnification, on the base, there could be what looks like the letter(s) A V or A M or just an A or just an M. On the otherhand, these could be scuff or scratchmarks- it's hard to tell.
My grandfather of Scottish decent obtained this. Might this be of Scottish origin? I'd appreciate any input on it's identity.
