Hi all,  Purchased this little beauty today for no more than a pound.  Original label attached and it was only when I got home, I noticed that it is signed too.   It is amazing what you can find, even though it was an afternoon shopping spree.   The Paperweight is signed M J Sweden 9201, which I believe was made by Maleras Glassworks of Sweden.  I am not sure of the period it was made though. ::)  The height is 7cm and has a nice flat polished base.  Good weight too!  measuring 320grams.   Thought I would share this with you all and any comments, appreciated.

Think its Mats Johansson now, but started as Maleras.  Good buy for a pound!

Hi Otis,  yes, great find!  I have the Dove and thought it was a find at a tenner, so well done.  Definately a Mats Jonasson piece.
This is a nice site for you to visit: http://www.crystal-fox.com/index.cfm/mats_jonasson_crystal.htm

Enjoy.
Rosie.
