Does anybody have more information about this kind of paperweight?
Does anybody know which kind of locomotion it is?

I have a weight very similar to this, it is Bohemian and very old. Tropdevin did some research which showed this type of locomotive was used in France around 1850 - 1860.

These weights are difficult to date precisely and it does not necessarily mean the weight was made in this period as it could have been later but I hope this information helps
