I just bought this paperweight, it has no markings. It looks to have silver flakes under the pink and blue flowers and it looks to be old? Does anyone have any info? It is one of my favorites!

    posted pic of the base. No markings. Has what looks like silver flakes. compared to my other paperweights this one looks old. Thanks for any info!

    it looks like the base is frosted or ground but not polished? From my limited understanding of paperweights that is an indicator that it's not very old. a polished base is one of the key things you look for in an older piece. from the style of the mica flakes I am thinking 70's.

    Thank you very much for the info! Mica flakes? I have so much to learn! :)
