    This paperweight is 3" high x 3.25" in diameter. It has a label which reads "Hand Made Genuine Venetian Glass - Vetro Artistico Veneziano - Made in Murano Italy", which was an exporter of Italian glass. It weighs about 1.5 lbs and has an internal "fountain" feature that I could not capture. I experienced an extended session of anesthesia yesterday and still having problems seeing and focusing mentally which did not stop me from going to a couple of thrift shops today. Ran out of steam when doing these images, so I may try again tomorrow.

    I believe that this design is called "tortoise shell"?
