I'm assuming you want a piece made by Charles? David's pieces and Daniel's pieces, and the grandson Jeremiah's pieces are less expensive than Charles' pieces but I'm assuming you're talking about a Charles piece. Let's start with that assumption. The Charles perfume bottles have gotten as expensive on the secondary market as they are in the studio...and they may be the ONLY pieces to have done that. I think the reason for that is because he just doesn't make very many of them. You can expect to have to give between $750 and $1,000 from one of Charles' floral perfume bottles. As far as paperweights (with FLORAL decoration on them), they are in the same boat.....they are not very common and when they do come up for sale they usually bring around $300 on the secondary market. My personal recomendation in the bang-for-the-buck category would be a multi-flora vase. You can find deals on the small to medium sized multi-flora vases at times. I just bought a 6" mutli-flora vase (with orange and white flowers, no less!) for $450, so it can be done. You can find a larger multi-flora vase (but it will almost certainly have pink and white flowers on it) for somewhere around $1,000 if you look around. Be discriminate though! Try to find one with flowers that you are in love with. I have gotten picky now about what color and type of flowers that I will buy them with. I sold some nice ones when I bought the last collection that I bought for VERY good prices...some nice and rather rare ones I sold for $750. In the studio, the price for a nice large multi flora vase would be around $2,000. Look for a nice multi flora bowl to be close to twice that amount. Right now, the secondary market is bringing about half of retail on most pieces. For the blue piece above with the peach-colored flowers, I've been offered $2,000 for it and I'm not interested in selling it for that price. If you tell me what you are looking for and all, I can probably help you find one at a decent price.
I hope this helps,
