No mark and I couldn't track anything down on Google that looked like this.
I don't even know if it's just a decorative paperweight or some kind of device used for something.
It has a finial top and the teardrop shape is repeated on the inside as a hollow space.
It's polished on the bottom with a slight circular dip in the center.
5" high and 3 1/4" diameter.
Thanks!

Despite looking rather Holmegaard like I believe you have a rarer Whitefriars paperweight there. They have used the nodule top on other examples and the bubble shape before.

Oh cool thank you so much for this info. I wasn't even thinking about anything remotely close to either makers you mentioned but I'm excited to know it might be Whitefriars because in California I don't think there's much Whitefriars out in the wild. Thanks again!
