I'm competely out of my comfort zone with paperweights -- please be gentle with me.
I have a Bohemian paperweight which I would like to know a little more about. It's got 8 kite-shaped facets at the top, followed by 3 rows of 6-sided facets, then 8 somewhat triangular facets at the very bottom. The edges of the facets are crisp / sharp.
The weight has got 5 multicoloured (though white is the predominant colour) flowers, each with an air bubble in the middle. The stems sprout from a green mottled base.
There is significant wear to the bottom. It stands 10cm tall and weighs 837g.
Is the weight from between 1900-1930?
Are the flowers in mine called 'trumpets'?
And is it a desirable example of a Bohemian weight? (I really don't know what paperweight collectors look for or pay attention to when it comes to this type of weight.)
Thank you for your thoughts and help.
