An interesting paperweight here – 2.5” diam, 2” high – flat polished base with quite nice canes. In fact a well made paperweight, Italian (Venice /Murano) manufacture I can tell from the canes/cane colours and glass.
The label is interesting – silver foil of 1960s / 70s type with appropriate wear ‘Edinburgh – Italy – International – Hand Cut’ with Scottish lion rampant in the middle. Anyone know this label, I feel its an exporter/importer into Scotland rather than a manufacturing concern over in Italy.
The ‘Hand – Cut’ bit is rather mystifying and I thought it may be an Edinburgh Cut Crystal label stuck on, but there are the words ‘International’ and ‘Italian’ – I also feel this label has been on since production.
Anybody have any ideas
