Whitefriars, often described as a streaky paperweight. Very heavy and lead crystal, should be a well finished polished pontil mark underneath.

Thank you John!
Do you know also when it was made and who the designer is?

Sorry, can't help with designer, you need someone with more Whitefriars experience than me. However, the pattern number is 9850 and I believe they were made by Ray Annenberg. A bit of googling may throw up more information about them.

A link here to a page from the Whitefriars 1978 catalogue which shows one of these weights: http://www.whitefriarsorg.co.uk/resources/cat7831_33.jpg

As far as I know they always have the three big air bubbles and they are made with two or more different colour canes stretched and swirled within the weight.
