Title: Early 20th Century American paperweight likely by Boston & Sandwich Glass Co.?

I recently was given this old American paperweight with roses. How do you tell who made this and how old or rare/valuable it is? Its fairly small. Thanks.

May be worth looking up St. Louis aswell?,I've seen something similar online,although the outer ring looks a bit neater.

I'd agree with St. Louis, although the photos aren't too clear.

It is not American.  Neither Boston & Sandwich nor New England Glass Co.  I agree that it is most likely St. Louis.  Great example.

Saint Louis, but has been ground to remove damage, and repolished, given the profile.
