I would not rule out immigrant European workers making this item in one of the many US Mid West glass factories in the late 1800s - mid 1900s.  I have seen fairly similar design paperweights from that region.

This is made by John or Charles Degenhart of Crystal Art Glass Company, Cambridge, Ohio (USA).  The style is distinctive with a name or saying on a white plaque with four icepick flowers near the edges of the plaque.  Sometimes there is a frit ground layer at the same level as the plaque.  Most had a distinctive blue outline at the border of the plaque.  John made paperweights from about 1946-1964 and they could be ordered and personalized with any name or saying desired.  Gearshift knobs were also made in this style.  Bottles were somewhat rarer.
