Geometric Paperweight ID help please. ID = Czech Republic
« on: November 22, 2015, 07:29:37 PM »
My Dad wants to sell some of his paperweight collection to raise some money to buy a mobility scooter for my mum.  He has asked me to "fleabay" them for him but unfortunately I can't ID this one which might help get a reasonable price for it.  Have had a look around and paperweights are a minefield.   Could anyone help me please, many thanks

Hi.  This is a typical Czech Republic style, which has been in more or less continuous production for the last 100 years or more.  My guess from the glass colour and facet style is that this is at least 50 years old.  The bad news is that it will not contribute much to your fund...
