Any ideas what this is?  I haven't seen anything like this before...but I have led a paperweight sheltered life - perhaps it's nothing unusual...

Ack.  I didn't know Barovier (I assume you mean) & Toso even DID paperweights. I'm such a paperweight heathen!   :roll:  :oops:

It's probably too expensive for me anyway at £75.  If it was less, I'd be tempted to bid.   :x but I'm trying to be careful with my pennies!  :evil:
