I don't collect paperweights but this was twinkling at me in a Charity Shop!
When I got it home, I noticed that it was signed with two signatures.
It is 2.5" tall and 3" across the base.
The base is concave.
The sides are ribbed and there is a pretty flower engraved panel to the front.
Does anyone recognise the maker and the signatures please?

The first part of the signature seems to be some sort of numbering, the second part I read J.Wettinger.

On the website Die Glasstrasse (The Glass Route) I find Wettinger Glaskunst (Wettinger Art Glass) in Pleystein - which is situated at the Glasschleiferweg, a long distance walk related to historical glass cutting sites.

Now - your item doesn't look like 21st century to me at first sight - but there may be a family tradition of glass cutting for the Wettinger family.

Well the link is muddled up - but in the end points to Rexxford.
Now go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rexxford-Crystal-Bavaria-Germany-Fleur-de-Lis-9-Bowl-/161149800264 - the last image being a Certificate from Rexxford Crystal in Bavaria - signed by J.Wettinger as executing cutter.

I'm not sure what happened to my link there Wuff

Rosie, here is an earlier sold  listing a number of years ago
but it shows the signature and the Rexxford signature and a number engraved.  I presume therefore that yours is also a Rexxford Crystal piece.

Thank you for all this information... I think you are right about the first 'name',  I can now see it says Nr. 011/100. So possibly a limited edition.
I had fathomed out J Wettinger,  but was looking for a maker of the original blank weight as being Fr. Ott...something!  So you have helped a lot thank you m and Wuff.  :)
