Identification please for this paperweight. Does anyone on this forum know if the paperweight in the attached files is a real Baccarat?

Is it original? If you have any further information, please let me know. I would be very thankfull.

Yep, sure is. It may be from the Depont period... one of the experts will confirm

Yes, I agree.  This is a Baccarat 20th century paperweight from the 1920s.  Usually called DuPont period to contrast it with the classic period weights from 1845 to 1860.
