Could we please see a couple of photos of the base - one straight on and the other at angle of about 30 degrees.

Hi Barry

The non-circular flat base is typical of Chinese products, and the colours could well be Chinese. I have not spotted this particular design on Chinese exporters websites, but there are - literally - thousands of paperweight designs on offer from China, so I suspect that is where it was made.

Let's see, poor choice of colors, out-of-round, modest effort at finishing the base, no distinguishing technique or colors, and made with frit and a pick.  This could literally have been made in any location with hot glass.  It looks like a amateur effort and attempting to assign a country of origin is nothing but pure guesswork.
