Glass cat paperweight
« on: July 31, 2022, 06:28:12 PM »
This paperweight is 4" (10.2 cm) high x 3" (7.6 cm) wide x 2.5" (6.3 cm) deep, unmarked. Molded with a smooth back and base, no mold lines, no marks. Thinking maybe Scandinavian, perhaps Pukeberg (?) but cannot find another like it. Has anyone seen this before and knows who made it?
Glass mutt. I collect anything I like & find interesting & is of reasonable quality.

Updated images. I also went over the whole piece with a magnifying glass to make sure it is not marked. It is not.  :(  Have looked at hundreds of images and can still not find another example.

The face rang a bell but I've had a look but can't find anything either.
