Faceted PW with ROSE and DAISIES???
« on: September 29, 2014, 12:58:51 PM »
Purchased this for $12.00(US) at an outdoor antiques fair this weekend in Liberty, North Carolina (USA).
It measures about 4"inches tall as-well-as 4"inches wide.
There are many facets as you can see in the photos and what looks to be a Rose in the center surrounded by daisies.
My first guess would be Bohemian... but that is as far as I could go.
Any information and comments would be most welcomed.
Thanks for looking,

Hi.  As you got it in the US, I would think it was more likely to have been made in the US by one of the many immigrant glass makers from central Europe.  They made a wide range of 'Bohemian' style paperweights in the Mid West factories.
