Your hubbie is a clever chappie, Rosie, he's made a super job of the base and she looks fab again now. :)

I have a response from btinternet.com - somewhat terse, perhaps they didn't like being referred to as this week's unhelpful ISP!

Hi.  Yes - Chinese.  Probably 1930 - 1940 period.  You sometimes find similar pieces on very well made spiral cushions.  Flower colurs vary - red, yellow, white combinations for the petals - much less common are blue.

On unpacking my caravan i found i had flip flops or wellies to wear, no shoes or trainers which were still back in a bag in my house is Stourbridge, the Malvern showground at 7 in the morning is no place for flip flops hence the wellies, it tipped it down the day before the fare where we were set up 3 miles away.

Thank you Nancy...  I couldn't bear for her to be shut away in a cotton wool lined box... and it is wonderful to see her 'dancing' again. :)

Glass Paperweights / Single flower on clear ground - Chinese?
« Last post by loraux on Yesterday at 07:59:09 PM »
I got this paperweight as part of a lot of miscellaneous items at an auction recently. I'm very new to paperweights, although my father has a few that I always admired. I have seen some photos of Boston and Sandwich or Clichy paperweights that had a single flower on a clear ground, but I think the quality of this weight is not good enough for it to be either of those makers. I just joined the forum, but I've already looked at it enough to think that you'll probably say this is Chinese.  ;) Is that correct?

As you can probably see in the photos, there are a lot of bubbles, which make a sort of uber-bubble at the level of the flower. (Sorry, I don't know paperweight terminology.) There is some crazing to the surface of the glass. There is enough shelfware on the bottom that I think it's fairly old. Anyway, I like it.

You must have a huge amount of energy Daniel! Still loving your drawings :-)
