Unusual Mid 1970's Isle of Wight Pen Holder Paperweight

Hi Chaps

I understand these paper labels were used in the mid 1970's. A little pen holding paperweight about 6 cm high, 5.5 cm wide and 4 cm front to back.

Yes mid to late 70s I expect, the exact dates were not recorded so there is a bit of guesswork involved. There is a similar label which just says Hand made Isle of Wight, it is assumed that that one is a bit earlier, perhaps 1973 and maybe 74.

The colours used in these blocks were varied and do not conform to the 'standard ranges' like tortoiseshell or pink and blue swirls. The same is true of the lollipop vases and paperweights made around the same time.

This lollipop looks to have a similar mix of colours: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/IsleOfWightStudioGlass#5433683056734842482
