Lion paperweight

I'm sure this has been on before but I can't find it in searches on here. They seem to have disappeared from ebay and image searches where I had seen one before. It does look Scandinavian. Similar style and feel. I know I am going to feel like an idiot when its Identified ??? ??? ??? :-[ :-[

It looks very "Pukeberg" in style to me.

No joy on both. So frustrating as I know i have seen this before but having a memory problem gets in the way  ;D Was sure it was on here but all search words come up blank. Will keep trying. Thanks to you both. Pete

Thanks John. The answer will turn up eventually and it was a 1 buy just out of curiosity so not a big deal really. Just a bit confusing as is the case with a lot of glass items. The feel and look say Scandi be I am regularly wrong on here   ;D

Is it one of the Kosta lions. Has it got a flat back?

The lion from the Kosta Boda Zoo series is different.
