Another paperweight to ID
« on: January 18, 2013, 03:48:09 PM »
Hi

Do you know who this is by?

Small 2in round paperweight. Brown/orange interior with green swirl in glass. Has something etched on the base but I think it's just a number.

Thanks for looking

Ros

Hi Ros, could it be that it originally came from Finland? My brother has sent me three similar weights, also with pontil mark and some engraving, but names like Viilainen and hard to decipher... kind regards ejm
