Height very close too.

Would echo Della, definitely not wonky enough. I would expect Hartley Wood to have a snapped off pontil mark, often see a slightly pushed up base too. This one was jagged enough to slice a finger.

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 Yesterday 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)
