Flower themed paperweight
« on: June 15, 2022, 02:32:51 AM »
This is just something I picked up at a thrift shop in Illinois several years ago. It was maybe molded as the bottom appears to have a mold mark, not ground flat. I picked it up because it is fairly complex but well done, I think. About 3.25 inches in diameter. Any thoughts on its origins or age? Thanks!

Can we have a proper photo of the bottom please. I can't see what's going on from the angled photo

Sorry about that! It will be a few days before I can post a better image as I am away from home, but I will do so as soon as possible.

Here are some additional images of the bottom. It has been some time since I looked at this paperweight. I had forgotten that it has a snapped pontil and quite a bit of wear to the base.

Thanks for taking a look!
