Murano Paperweights and Labels Age??
« on: October 22, 2007, 07:46:50 PM »
Hello, I am new to this site and I may have posted my posts in the wrong place, I posted in Murano Glass Society. Here are some pics of the paperweights, 2 of them have labels and 1 does not. I found these paperweights at an Estate sale for Ada Belle Spencer(she was an opera singer). I would like to find out maker and age. Thank you! Here goes(fingers crossed)

This one has no label and it has dimples
and no gold like the others.

I have seen that rooster label on stuff that I knew was Seguso. The first two weights have cane clusters like some Seguso weights that I have. I have a weight with the identical canes as the red one. Fratelli Toso makes canes that are very similar but theirs tend to be more precise.

The last paperweight is a mystery to me.

My guess on age would be perhaps 50s but I am not certain. I think the rooster is an older label.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

You may like to consider adding the photo of your "Rooster" label to the set of Murano labels recorded at:

and galleried at:

Yours has subtle differences to the one shown at:
