I have a picture of a label on a weight which it totally different to the one shown in the attachment. The label reads "De Cora Imports Inc. New York"  Sorry but I cannot post this picture as I copied it some years ago for reference and I do not have copyright or know who does but hope this helps

Perhaps it would have been more helpful to have stated this rather than phrase it as an enquiry.

The DeCora Import Company, based in New York, were the main imports of Whitefriars paperweights to the USA. Whitefriars closed in 1980. DeCora approached John Deacons to make a paperweight exclusively for them. John agreed and wondered what to call this new weight, he happened to glance at a map of Scotland and noticed the small island of St Kilda in the Hebrides so he called this new brand St Kilda and introduced the Stk cane. If you post a picture of the paperweight we might be able to help identify the maker.
