Victorian Daffodil ??

I feel that this paperweight may be modern Chinese, rather than Victorian, and probably not a daffodil! Likewise the 'frog on lily pad' to which the seller refers.

Any views?

Definitely Chinese and a million miles from a daffodil

The seller has updated the flower and frog weights listings to say "Late 20th century", but has retained the "daffodil" description for the flower.

To be fair to the seller, they amended the advert following advice.
