Could anyone tell me anything about this Paperweight which looks like it has blue spots of paint all over, these are part of the paintwork but look out of place, would like to know who made the weight and price ranges, Thanks Sam

It was made by Isle of Wight Studio Glass, either one of the Meadow Garden or Summer Fruits colours, they can be difficult to tell apart.

Examples on these pages:

That's exactly what I thought John,  :) but I can't get the pics to enlarge.

Don't try to get the "paint spots" off! They're not paint and they're supposed to be there.
You could search a well-known auction site for sold items to get an idea of price ranges.
We don't tend to discuss values here. Something is worth what somebody is willing to pay for it, in that place and at that time.
