I have got this item.
My first idea was Chinese.
But could it be Silesia, Bohemia?
Any opinions??

The ground is concave.
On surface are some little fleebites.

I say chinese also, but not with 100% certainty as I would on others as there are some not typical characteristics.       1   Base finish.
 2  Individual cane extrusions.
      Regards Roger.

As some board members know, we collect older Chinese paperweights.  Here is an image of some more, including some with canes that are similar to those in the weight that started this thread.

My opinion is  that these are not Chinese, but are of Bohemian / German origin.  The quality of the glass is much better than Chinese.  I realize that I am in the minority.  Also, I have never found one with China scratch signed on the bottom as was required of Chinese weights post 1929.
