Chinese? ID please
« on: June 22, 2012, 03:37:43 PM »
ok so Im 80% sure this is chinese, could someone confirm?  It looks like old glass, few "bits" in it, and the canes look slightly more complex than the older chinese, so I risked 3 on it being the other 20% which was St Mande.....

I would say Chinese, but that's only a guess

Definitely Chinese, IMHO.  A couple of the canes look the same as this older Chinese weight of mine - specifically the white with pink centre and the acid green ones. 

Still a nice little weight, though  :)

Definitely 1930s Chinese.

Hi Ian.

Have a look at the early Chinese paperweight images here . Very similar to yours.
