    I thought this was such a pretty color I could not pass up spending $2 on it :) There are no markings on it, but it is such a deep purple color it almost looks black. It has a few character bubbles in it & weighs just over 2 lbs

    Can anyone add any info?

      I love these tornado weights (my name for them).
      That matte base says it's probably Chinese glass. Still takes skill though.

      Thank you so much racer4four! I fell in love with it! I was surprised when I picked it up at the weight. Is that matte glass bottom being from China a good rule of thumb? I love the "tornado weight" name!

      Generally a good indicator Joy. Not necessarily a really recent make - the Chinese have made paperweights over a hundred years.

      Thanks racer4four! Is there a way to date this one or a good website I can go to for help?
