Hi Alan - many thanks for the opinion. This one is a good size too at 9cm diameter.
BTW do these weights have any value?
Thanks again

Hi.  I am sure it is Old English - but I am not sure which factory: I don't think it from any of the known makers.  It may well be from the same factory as the one below - which after several years I attributed to 'unknown English factory'. Mine was a large weight - around 4 inch diameter.  I believe that several presently unidentified English factories made some paperweights in the 19th century.

Thanks for the additional info, greatly appreciated.
So the weight seems even more interestiing than I had thought initially ;)

I will test it under UV and post the result...

They certainly look like Davidson pattern no. 51 vases, Chris.

The Davidson catalogues give a nominal height of 7 inches, and
gives the known cloud glass colours as amber, blue, purple, green, and orange

Glass Paperweights / Any ideas on ID - Murano?

I have another weight that is perplexing me!
I think it is Murano but the canes are really complex and look at league above murano.
The base is flat polished with light wear so bot really old.
Any comment really appreciated.

Hi - would really appreciate some help in identifying this one! My hunch is it is Old English?

Hi Ayesha,

I have split out your three items into this and two other threads (see links in "Mod:" comment above).

Glass / Re: Jobling Dancing girl or not ?

Many thanks for the information Angela and the work you've put into getting it ~ very interesting and helpful. The blue colour in my picture of the figure is stronger/brighter than it is in reality ~ the colour of the bowl is more accurate and similar to other pieces of Jobling which I've seen on the internet.
Any idea if the bowl is likely to be original to the frog and therefore by Jobling too?
Thanks again, John.
Glass Trinket Sets / Re: Pressed glass Czech style perfume bottle made in Japan

Curiously Anne I have just been reading up on these bottles in a book I recently purchased Czechoslovakian Perfume Bottle and Boudoir Accessories by Jacquelyne Y Jones-North. Apparently they are reproductions or copies of Czech designs made in Japan not meant to deceive but just copying a good design to make money. Irving W Rice of New York seem to have imported many of these they appear regularly on Ebay with the Made in Japan stamp and a IRICE paper label.
