Following Greg's latest thoughts in this thread and similar work in another thread:,65366.msg365721.html#msg365721
I have added an ID to the title and moved this into the Czech Republic (etc) forum.

Hi carlovision, welcome to the Board.

Sorry to start off with a moderator query / comment, but the wording of the text and the fact that the image is a screen shot suggests that the text and image are from a website rather than your own words and photo. If that is the case then the Board Guidelines on use of copyright material (at least for the image, if not entirely for the text) come into play.

Please see: ADMIN: Using Copyright Material under the section for "Board Information, Help & Announcements".

If the image is not your own or is not used with permission of the copyright owner, then it will  need to be removed. A simple link to a web page is acceptable.
Wow, yes, seems identical.  Really pleased with outcome, thanks so much.

Hi Kevin-

Definitely glass, semi-opaque, and there is a nice pontil mark on the bottom.

A Paul Ysart Badge Paperweight with Military Cap Badge of the Royal Regiment of Artillery inside, Made in Scotland in WW2, Art Glass 1930s.

A 1930s - 1940s period "badge weight". by Paul Ysart. Several are known to exist with most being a standard paperweight containing a military cap badge set on a spattered ground. Paul Ysart made few during WW2 due to lack of colour materials in Great Britain.

This intriguing heraldic paperweight is blunted at the base of the Coat of Arms therein so it may be placed on its side to present its contents which read in Latin: "Ubique Suo Fas Et Glory Ducunt", or "("Everywhere That Right And Glory Lead") for the Royal Artillery. The Royal Regiment of Artillery, commonly referred to as the Royal Artillery (RA) and colloquially known as "The Gunners", is the artillery arm of the British Army. The Royal Regiment of Artillery comprises thirteen Regular Army Regiments, King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery and five Army Reserve Regiments.

Paperweight's provenance is of the important New Orleans collector, Felix H. Kuntz the Dean of Americana, (1890-1971).

Dimensions: About 2" tall and 3" in diameter.

*Anyone know its approx value? I saw wonderful ones here:

Glass / Iridescent monogrammed clover shaped glasses
« Last post by SNJ on Yesterday at 09:18:30 PM »
Not sure what to make of these two glasses. Look to be good quality glass with a subtle iridescence, interesting four leaf clover lobed gilded rim and monogram. Probably absolute tat but I'm willing to be corrected!
