Hi there,

Could anyone please give me an ID for this paperweight?

Judging by color, style and wear itís 1950ís or a little earlier, but I got know clue about its origin.
The paperweight ís base is slightly concave with a burned pontil mark.

The paperweight has a diameter of 8,8 cm x height 7,4 cm (3,46 x 2,91 inch). Weight: 861 gr.

Hi.  I suspect it is from one of the thousands (literally) of small glass studios around the world that have made a few paperweights from time to time over the past 100 years.  It is just about impossible to specify the source if it is not signed.

Thanks for your reply Alan.
I already feared it would be kind of untraceable, but itís still pretty.
