Glass Dump Paperweight
« on: January 15, 2012, 12:57:29 PM »
I am looking for help on identifying with large glass dump. It measures 10cm tall & about 11.5cm wide & very heavy.The top is seems unusual as it is flat?? Lots of wear to the base & a couple of chips. Any help will be greatfully received.

Hi.  It is typical of the Alsace / Belgian pieces from the 1880 - 1920 period. That said, various people (including the Ysarts) copied these designs - but yours looks to me like a European example.
