Hi KevinH,
Sorry, itís hard to describe in text!
a) there is no visible indentation.
b) yes, it is completely smooth.

The decoration isnít just on the surface so it isnít simple combed decoration as shown in the YouTube clip above. If you took a section horizontally through the weight, it would look like a wheel with five spokes with a hole in the middle. For each section, the decoration goes around the outside of the wheel, then down the spokes to the hole in the middle, which is the bubble.

The decoration is often done before a paperweight is encased in its final layer. Combing doesn't have to be surface decoration
