    Multifaceted custom made Bohemian paperweight (monogrammed engraved interlocking SZ). It is of unusual form suitable to engrave a monogram. All edges are cut serrated. The first picture is the original size. The third picture: age scratches; a good advise for glass collectors, there is no way to fake millions of scratches in all possible directions that made the glass almost opaque.

      How many sides does this amazing jewel have? At first I thought it was eighteen. Now I am not so sure...... it must have 22 sides! An icosikaidihedron! Wow! And the butterfly is so large and vibrant! I wonder who the lucky SZ or ZS was?

      I had to count them:
      Actually there are 30 sides, including the base and top central square. They are arranged in four rows starting from the bottom:
      The base 1
      1st row: 8 larger rectangles
      2nd row: 8 smaller rectangles
      3rd row: 8 smaller triangles
      4th row: 4 larger triangles (one engraved with SZ)
      Top square 1
      ……………..
      Total: 30 sides
