Hiya and welcome!
This looks Scottish to me, possibly Strathearn. Somebody else who knows more will confirm, I'm sure.

Could we ask you to please post your images directly to the board? It's very easy and it means that images do not get lost or disappear from the board and so lost as a reference for the future.

Loads of techie info and board stuff here:-

It can also help folk a lot if you can come up with some title which describes the item a bit - so that it can be found.
(I imagine there must be around 5,000 posts entitled "id please")
Cheers, Sue (M)

And beautiful images they are.  :)  Thank-you!
I imagine your weight will be identifiable from its appearance - but normally, an image of the base of a piece is incredibly helpful for id.

This is a standard daily production weight from Strathearn Glass, made 1964 through 1980.

Sue is correct that a base shot often helps with paperweight identification, but in this instance the "chunky" twist canes and the overall look confirm the ID.
