Probably Chinese but...

I'm sure I've seen it on here but can I find it :?: I can even remember that it was with a blue, green and white splodgy one that I'm sure was identified a Caithness. Not sure whether the base is polished and well worn or not polished. Click to enlarge

Do I take it from the deafening silence that it is Chinese? :cry:

Sorry, Christine :oops:

I think the answer is 'Probably'.  It could be Scandi, but the slightly bubbly glass says to me it's more likely Chinese.  

It's cleverly done, and attrractive, anyway, isn't it?   :D

I like it, particularly the 'coated' bubbles. It was only £2

Bargain!  :D  I have a few in this and similar styles, and I reckon to pay not more than £6.00 or thereabouts.  Interesting techniques, and well worth the money, IMNSHO  :wink:

Suddenly occurs to me that of course this weight could be by Langham glass!  I have seen this sort of 'coated bubble' done by them.

They usually have a label, but this could easily have been removed.  What is the base like, Christine?

I saw a similar if not identical paperweight in a truck stop in Iowa 2 weeks ago. (Long story of why I was in a truck stop in IA  :lol: )

They had big glass display cases of all types of Art Glass.  To  my extreme irritation the price tag was over all the labels  :x   But given the prices in the $19.99 to $49.99 range for large pieces I suspect they are Far East in origin.

The base is ground but not polished with some wear. Thanks both for your thoughts
