Hi. Both the paperweights you show above are English. You are correct to say that the orange one with '1848' canes is made later than 1848, probably in the 1920s - 1930s, by Arculus or Walsh Walsh. I think they made these at the request of wholesalers - so quite who was setting out to deceive whom is an open question. The paler coloured one is Walsh Walsh, perhaps 1940s.
Regarding values / prices for Dupont - or any other paperweights - we do not usually discuss these on GMB. However, if you would like to send me a private message to my email address (which you can do from here or the link on my website) I will happily give you my personal views.
