|THE ANSWER: Bohemian
Concentric on latticinio basket ground. Bohemia is a
region of what is now Czechoslovakia. The latticinio basket is not
visible in the picture. Age unknown, but probably c1880-1920.
The dimensions of this paperweight are 2 1/8" by 1 1/4". The bottom is flat.
Some people refer to this as German pre-World War I based on a very brief reference to this type in Hollister's "Encyclopedia of Glass Paperweights", pg. 279.
