Dear All,

for my two penneth these are Chinese and may I say rather nice too.  Here's one with a complex cane. What a shame they stopped building on this potential base.

Kind Regards

Andrew

Dear All,

some typical paperweights that I would consider Bohemian.

Their weight, clarity and millefiori construct are quite different to my Chinese piece's...and to be blunt,the Chinese one's do not have the same refinement. Though when I find Chinese one's, similar to your's, as I see them,  I snaffle them up.  :-)

If you have examples of others that point in either direction please post away as we'll all be happy to see them. Tx

My thanks to Peter von Brackel and Ian Cummins for their insights. Top class.

With kind regards

Andrew

I agree that those are not Chinese: to me, they are from Thuringia / Lauscha / perhaps Silesia.  Not strictly Bohemian - more German - but it depends how tight your definition of Bohemian is!  Somewhere I have an image of a paperweight with very similar canes and a plaque that says 'Gruss von Lauscha'.
