No idea who made it, sorry Otis.  By the way I really like it I would have bought it too.   :thup:

Your thought about Webb might be a good one.  I have only seen very simplistic topwindow and 6 side windows cut to clear type work in a gold and a green.  But the overlay looks possible.

 I also think that Val St Lambert would be worth a try - they make really well finished cut to clear product.

Firstly, thanks Anne!! 

Hi Ross,  Thank you for your reply.  I tried the Whitefriars site as a last resort and they too are unsure.  I was so excited and still am, that is, in the purchasing of this paperweight, solely because of the colouration, weight, cuts and design.  Personally, one of the best paperweights I have ever acquired, regardless of the initial outlay.  I only spotted it by off chance, as it was tucked away behind items displayed on a shelf. There was no price tag, so I ended up negotiating a deal.   I will most definitely investigate via. Val St Lambert.  Any positive leads, I will  let you know.  I am so intrigued in trying to find out who made it.  It is in perfect condition and someone must of put in a considerable amout of time and effort in order to design  such a high quality piece.  Once again, many thanks for you help.
