Sorry Rose I have not followed up this pwt.  Events with my wife's Ovarian Cancer have overtaken me and I don't know when I might be able to find out something.  It really is a fascinating mark so I will try to put it on the extended to do list.

I haven't managed to locate an image of the weight or the kiwi mark - the moderator has removed it because of copyright, and the link provided does not work. Giovanni produced a very distinctive 'murrini' kiwi in the 1990s, but I suspect since this is a mushroom paperweight that it is not one of theirs. If I can be sent an image or provide with a link I'll be pleased to try to help

Thanks for that, got there in the end. I have seen that mark on one or two pieces listed for sale on TradeMe (the New Zealand e-Bay), but I have never been able to track down their origin. I have a sneaking suspicion it might be Chinese (they do a great line they call 'The New Zealand Collection', but that's just a hunch. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
