This is the fourth and last for now. It is different from the others as it has a  rough concave pontil mark  .Thank you again

I would say this one might not be Chinese, perhaps a small studio. It doesn't seem typical of the Chinese products IMHO

... it has a rough concave pontil mark.

Could you provide an image?
"A rough concave pontil mark" does (in my experience) not usually point towards China.

Whilst the design might well be Chinese, Chinese weights will in most cases have a flat, frosted, usually somewhat irregular base. More recently flat polished bases have shown up on the market.
Your weight seems to be fire polished - whether this means it is not Chinese, or that now Chinese weights with fire polished bases appear as well, I really don't know.
