Is my paperweight possibly a Selkirk?
« on: September 25, 2012, 09:43:52 AM »
Hi, I'm new to this so please be kind. O recently bought this large, heavy paperweight. It is 3.5 inches across and high (9cm) and weighs 1032 grams. It is very beautiful and clear. Could  someone please help me to identify it?
Thank you
Domans

A base shot would be good, but IMHO it has all the hallmarks of a modern Chinese paperweight: the gold, the blue, the single colour, the bubble and the slightly sloppy execution.

Thank you Lustrousstone,
Very much appreciated. I will try to send a base shot. There are no marks or signatures.

It's muttering "Royal Crest" at me, which would be modern Chinese.
Welcome to the gmb, Domans! :)
