Hi Marc,

I am fairly sure that it is an old/antique French paperweight. But I cannot work out from which factory (out of my comfort zone).

Alan will tell you more, I am sure.

i reckon St Mande - follows their pattern, particularly with the outer ring almost hidden at the edge.    But then French is not my thing

Hi Alan (Monsieur Tropdevin),

Do you agree with our tentative ID (old French - St. Mande)?

Bonsoir Madame SophieB et al (to mix my languages)

I think it is St Mandé - the rounded shape is right, and the canes and design are consistent with StM.
