I bought this PW because it had a 1980s label for Isle of Wight Studio Glass attached to the base. If this is by them I have never seen anything like it before. It looks wrong.

But the paperweight is quite good. Maybe too many bubbles though. It measures 5 cm in diameter and 3.5 cm high. The label is in a slight depression on the base. The fact that there is even a hint of a depression on the base is not characteristic of IOWSG either. Is this a Chinese lampwork weight?

Comments appreciated. Thanks.

Anton

The label has been removed.  >:(  I didn't pay much for it, so I won't lose out. I will sell it on, properly described.
