Lustrousstone is correct  -  it is Czechoslovakian.           Mine has a label and reads......'JAFFE ROSE  -  Hand Made in Czechoslovakia'.          It's possible we have an example of this label on the Board's marks and labels section - but I'm not certain. :)

In case the label isn't shown on the Board, here is a pic of the label on my example.

Thanks all. again. I dont usually go for paperweights as it is an absolute minefield. This caught my eye though and came at a cheap price. Really well finished compared to most I see and far far too much chinese glass about. Bit unfair to say that as some chinese glass I have seen is quite nice and some has a real quality about it. Pete

Yes it was, but the controlled bubble stuff seems to be Czech
