I've just found another that's not quite like any of the six in the book. This one's slightly shallower than my first at 0.75 inch. Excuse the hasty pic, but I was about to pop it on ebay thinking it was a duplicate - then I got all excited!  :chky:

New Chance Paperweight

Is this Chance paperweights ?  It is same size as the six paperweights in the book "Chance Expression". Just more simpler design.
How many more are there apart from the six.

Does this weight fit in here? Can't be sure about the profile, though, from the images - just a thought.

Profile appears as though it might be domed. The Chance weights are basically flat. The engraving is nice though

Like KevH, I have seen thousands of weights, but do not recall ever seeing one of these. I will now keep my eyes open.

I was aware of that - but the original images, and the description, didn't prove either of them (flat or domed). I have contacted the seller - yes, the weight is domed, i.e. no Chance Glass, and a couple of additional images are now shown.

The engraving is nice though.
I fully agree - unfortunately the shipping cost to Switzerland is rather high.
