I wonder if anyone might help with identifying this paperweight? It has no labels, marks or signature. Measures about 9cm high.

Thanks,
Tony

9 cms is a big weight!
First thought was Mdina, but did they do anything that nice?
A base picture would help, is it cut and polished?

Hi,

it is pretty chunky, wouldn't like to drop it on my toe :-)

Picture of the base attached.

Semi-polished base so I'm still thinking maybe Mdina. They are not always marked,
as they also used stickers.

I'm thinking Mdina and if it's not modern it could be a serious piece. I'll cross it over to a Mdina IoW page to see what they say.

Hi Rvsaid,
thanks. Will I still get notifications on the thread once it's moved, or how would i find that page? Sorry, new to this.
