Thank you crisscooper and chopin-liszt! This is definitely the signature. Next time I will definitely post with a picture of the entire piece.
I have 2 excellently executed contemporary paperweights bought a estate sales. They both seem to have the same artist's signature so I've attached the one that is more clear. I've tried to decipher numerous permutations of letters and names to no avail.
Please assist in my identification of the artist. I have other 20th century contemporary art glass pieces (mostly paperweights and vases) with hard to decipher signatures but promise only to inquire regarding those which are of superior design and well executed (employing advanced and/or difficult techniques).
Thank You for your assistance!
