Hi, green lizard Paperweight on a blue ground 623grm and 3.250 inches dia and 2.250 inches tall my first thoughts were Chinese and then Murano. ????
Any help on I/D would be appreciated

Absolutely, 100% Chinese. British Heart Foundation new goods, dating to around 2003-ish.
Really rather nice too.  :)

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

As Sue rightly says this is a Chinese weight and was the first in a series of weights specially commissioned and sold by the British Heart Foundation for 4.99

Thanks to everyone for the confirmation slowly getting better with some I/ds. Its a shame that the tinypics in some of the search  threads tend to disappear over time thus losing valuable images / information.

I think if you find a thread with vanished images it would be quite old.
If you do, it is a good idea to flag it up to the original poster and ask them to replace the image if at all possible - or to tell one of our lovely moderators who might be able to chase up the original poster if you can't.
We have been making a concerted effort to encourage folk to post images directly to the board for some time. It really is a complete pain when images vanish.
