The synonymical use of the the term white for clear would only work in one direction, so a clear
item would sometimes possibly be called white, but never vice versa.
I think the word ´kristall´ would always implicate a stronger clearness than just ´klar´. There would
also be the word ´kristallklar´ (crystal clear) in german with the same meaning as in english; this
can also be used in a figurative way.
Peter with your knowledge i would be honoured if you were in my facebook group. ;)

A few close ups, you can see though how a cracked paperweight could be used.
Thank you very Much
kind regards Steven
Thank you all So much for your replies and i apologise for my lateness in replying i have been away.

the base in real life does show signs of wear, i have experience with antique weights and the look and feel would certainly suggest pre 1900
thank you so much for the ID Im always blown away by the Knowledge in this forum
kind regards Steven
Hi the glass from the snowglobe was threaded and it was glass not plastic. It had a circular separate
Rubber piece and when put together it was absolutely watertight. The glass had lots of tiny air bubbles in it. My sister has it now. I bought it from EBay for for Xmas. Hope that helps any other question I’ll try to answer even though I don’t have it now👍🏻

Hello Rose,

most likely a Perthshire (Scotland) PP 4 concentric weight,
some have a P signature cane in the outer row,
made over a long period until ca. 1992,

hope this helps, cheers e.m.

Thank you SO much for your reply, knowledge and replying to my post.

I did Not figure it was "American" when I asked about it and thought I would buy it.  I think I have one other Perthshire weight here in my small collection.  I am still glad to have found it.  Plus being smaller - easier to find a space for it here as sometimes I feel my home "runneth-over" with glass and bigger murano pieces, and Czech vases. 

I recently bought that Cenedese Art glass bowl ( 16 pounds !!! ) and believe me that needs S P A C E .....LOL

It's not sharp, John, so it's possibly heat-finished. I can't find my little pot which might have a similar finish.
The bases I have looked at are not consistent, some are shiney polished, some are more satinated and rough.
I did find an image online, of something like my little pot which might well have ended up with a broken off pontil mark. It also shows one of the more complex colourways, normally beautifully executed pieces. Some Phoenician is really top stuff. As good as Anthony Stern.  ;D
