I have a paperweight with a mark I can't identify.

The paperweight is approximately 5cm across. there is a mark stamped into the base that, to me, looks like a cartoon worm or snake or a stylised letter "U'. I may be looking at the mark wrong and could be something else all together.

I have taken some pictures, I hope they are clear enough.

Has anyone seen a mark like this before? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Makers Eric Imeson and Carol Capalija, who operated a glassblowing studio called Dragon Glass near Atherton in far north Queensland, Australia. See an earlier thread:,58997.msg333766.html#msg333766

There's another paperweight on a collector's web site here.

See my blog on Australian studio glass. There is now a Facebook page with Australian glass news.
