The colour looks a bit similar to the Whitefriars streaky here doesn't it?
I don't know anything about Whitefriars though so no idea if it might be shape wise or whether the streaky effect is right/cased etc.
Presuming both these are correctly id'd.

Glass Paperweights / HBS?
« Last post by frnkvdw on Today at 04:15:56 PM »
Hi there,

A faceted Bohemian magnum paperweight i found a while back.
It is flawless, with hardly any shelfwear, but the label on top suggest it is at least before 1993
(after í93 Czechoslovakia became Czech Republic).

diameter 9,7 cm x height 9 cm (3,81 x 3,54 inch) and a weight of 842 gr.

The label is probably an import label, which I canít trace back.
Can somebody help me please? Thanks.

H = Harrachov, Harmanova ?
B = Bohemia
S = Sklo (glass)

I am by no means an expert, but from the Hartley Wood I've had this one just doesn't look 'wonky' enough and the base looks too well finished. Hopefully someone in the know will be along shortly  8)

7 inches tall, polished pontil mark, some wear, I've heard that most have cracked/ rough pontil marks, heavy for its size and if not it didn't cost much so it's ok  ;D
