I can't get a legible photo of the impression mark, but I'm guessing anyone who knows Kerry paperweights will be familiar with it, it reminds me of a serpent turning back onto itself, an opened oval circle.

I'm just curious, does anyone know what it's meant to signify? For some odd reason, it's driving me crazy not knowing.

Hmmm, as I write this, itjust popped into my head,  maybe a fancy "C" for Celtic?

It's a flame: a reversed one compared with the Isle of Wight one.

They're not all reversed, (just to complicate things). I think the prunty thing they originally used had got lost or broken, it was an accident that the one they made/got to replace it was the wrong way round.

The hole in the middle of the logo is supposed to represent a blob of glass in the flame.
