Butterfly paperweight
« on: January 30, 2011, 07:45:55 PM »
I thought this was rather unusual; the butterfly is fibre glass or other heat-resistant fabric. The base is flat and polished. Has anyone any idea where it was made please?

I think these may have been made by Beranek Glass in the 1960s, but I am not certain.  They show about 80 different paperweight designs on their site at present.
