paperweights with roosters
« on: June 03, 2007, 10:26:04 PM »
Hello!  Somewhere I saw a maker who had several pw's with roosters on them.  Does this strike a chord with any of you?
Thanks..Pat

I saw Murano on Ebay just yesterday that had a rooster cane in the centre. Baccarat has a rooster among it's Gridel silhouette canes. They have a nice series of weights where one of the Gridel canes is larger than the other and in the centre with the other silhouettes in a smaller size and worked into the design. Perthshire made a very nice magnum millefiori with a rooster picture cane. Wish I would have gotten my hands on one of those.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Hi Pat
Don't know if this is of any interest but here are two paperweights with rooster canes, the first is a Perthshire cushion weight where the rooster cane is set about half an inch below the top of the weight is is seen through then "porthole"

The second picture is of a scrambled weight I bought in Venice

I remember discussing roosters in Murano weights here.  The rooster is the city symbol for Murano, so roosters in Murano weights is not going to be unusual.
Thank you very much!

Thanks everyone!  I learned something new.  Those are BEAUTIFUL paperweights!   I've noticed that when I go into the ebay uk site, I see much better ones.  Right now I'm bidding on a Phoenician glass weight from Malta thru the uk site.   Thanks for the information!

That one is the Murano I saw yesterday. I flagged it and watched it to see what it would sell for.
