The maker of this paperweight is unknown. There is no signature on it. I have been collecting paperweights for a lot of years and I know somethings about them but not everything. I know enough about this paperweight to say it is not new. What the actual age is I do not know. I am going to guess maybe from the 1950's. I got it in the 1990's. It is an ice pick flower with some controlled bubbles on the tip. Originally I though this was may have been made in Milleville NJ an American paperweight. I have come to think maybe it is actually Bohemian Czech. I say that because the colors seem like they may lend themselves to that group, also it has a very highly polished pontil, a lot of the American weights seem roughly finished if at all. Last it has an odd oblong shape to it. Wider at the top. A lot of American weights seem to be quite round. I really an not sure and if you are more knowledgeable then me please shoot me a message on what you think. Size is about 2.65 inches wide and high. It also has lots of very tiny bubbles inside the paperweight if that is another clue. Condition I put very very good. It has just a couple of tiny spots on it when examined very closely. Not a detraction or something someone casually is going to notice. I hold these up to a bright light and scrutinize them. It is almost impossible to find a paperweight that may be 60 years old an be completely flawless but this one comes close. This is a nice vintage paperweight.
I have been
collecting Art Glass for about 20 years. I used to live next to a large
flea market and a couple big antique malls. So I would pick things up
whenever I saw something that fit the collection or I thought was a good
deal. I sold about 50 paperweights last summer and I am getting pushed
to sell the rest as I am relocating. Please check out my ebay store as I
will be putting things up all summer. Thanks
