Can anyone possibly help to ID this weight?
« on: June 22, 2011, 09:46:15 PM »
I have seen a weight like this before but for the life of me I cannot remember where and I cannot track it down. As you can see it has tiny bubbles attached to the tops and undersides of the petels and the weight has a flat base. If anyone can help I would be very grateful.

I have seen similar style flowers in Czech paperweights, so that would be my first thought.

I know what you mean about the style of flower being similar but the detail is far better than any of the Czeck designs that I have come accross.
