Just acquired this paperweight by Liam Carey not sure if it was when it was liskeard glass or after he bought it and changed its name to Merlin glass.

I had a very similar piece recently, but with some blue colour in it too, that carried a Merlin Glass label on the base - so I suspect yours is a Merlin Glass piece.

There are some other threads on the Board which discuss Merlin Glass, and at least one has a post with the url for the company.

They may not be making paperweigfhts as such (although doorknobs are similar), but an email via the website might provide all the info you are looking for.
