An interesting paperweight here ‚Äď 2.5‚ÄĚ diam, 2‚ÄĚ high ‚Äď 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 ‚Äď silver foil of 1960s / 70s type with appropriate wear ‚ÄėEdinburgh ‚Äď Italy ‚Äď International ‚Äď Hand Cut‚Äô 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.(http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/6663/pweighta1ew.th.jpg)
The ‚ÄėHand ‚Äď Cut‚Äô bit is rather mystifying and I thought it may be an Edinburgh Cut Crystal label stuck on, but there are the words ‚ÄėInternational‚Äô and ‚ÄėItalian‚Äô ‚Äď I also feel this label has been on since production.
Anybody have any ideas
