Sinclair Johnson 1890 paperweight
« on: May 10, 2024, 06:28:09 AM »
Hi,does anyone have any information on this 8.5cm diameter paperweight.
The design has been engraved on the bottom with the name & date on the top.
The six facets are concaved rather than ground flat.
I am struggling to find anything on the name at all.
Thanks,Paul

Hi Christine,
regarding the signature i did think this might be a possibility after having no luck at all on the net.
Not knowing anything about Bohemian glass,could this be older than the date on it.
Cheers,Paul.
