Stunning detail but no makers mark apart from an 'S' at the bottom. Any ideas?  :-\

It's a Whitefriars paperweight, in the third photo at the 1 o'clock position is in fact their signature cane of a stylised monk around which is the date of the weight although I can't read it. The S on the base indicates this is a second that would have been sold off in the factory shop.
