Hi Steven.  I have not seen these facetted before...but they are 1930s Chinese. Usually they appear as rounded paperweights, and matching bottles.  The facetting may be later, of course.  We have a couple of bottles - with very long stoppers, like 'scent stoppers'.

Hello Alan
Thank you so much for the information. Yes I have had the more common rounded Chinese weights before and did not realise they did a faceted example.

Thanks again for your knowledge. Kind regards Steven
