Hi Keith
In the grounds of the Pilkington factory was a small glassworks called St Helens Glassworks. They employed several workers from "Bohemia" hence the similarity of some of their designs to Bohemian weights. Apart from these trumpet flower designs they made butterfly weights and their most well known are the name weights - picture of mine attached - which usually have the name underlined with three flowers in the design. Hope this helps
Dave

Hi.  Looks like a typical 1960s Pilkington's (St Helen's) piece to me. I give these to the local charity shop when I get them...
