Glass paperweight signature
« on: February 07, 2016, 01:59:56 PM »
I have a paperweight with a Turkish teapot on and the base has a signature on which I don't recognise.
Any help would be lovely!

it appears to read ZKP or ZCP Sweden and then a ref number of 28--- (maybe 26878)
Please add a full photo of the weight along with a pic of the base as this can often help with identification.
Thank you :)

Here's a picture of it from the front. It measures 10cm tall and just over 8cm wide
Thanks Ben

Perhaps Nybro?

Although most Nybro items are less complex in the outer finishing, there is currently on eBay an example with similar overall shape and complex exterior surface, with image design on front.
