in the book „Classic French Paperweights” from Edith Mannoni I found a interesting Detail, which probably brings us closer to the maker of my new weight.
On Page 3 is a photo of an antique St. Louis Jelly Dish, which has a small paperweight as its base. In the outer ring it has canes, who look similar to the red-star canes with the blue star in it, you can see on my paperweight, also in the outer ring. But as my canes have 7 red stars, this one has 10. But they really look very equal. I send a photo of this one tomorrow, so you can see for yourself, what I mean.
The funny thing is, that I have a weight in my mind, which I see some months ago, which reminds me very much on my one, but I don´t know what kind it is. Everytime I look on the paperweight, my mind would tell me what it is, but my mouth wouldn´t tell it … It´s hard to explain, hope you understand it. It´s like the feeling, that Leni had, some posts above (ringing bells)
At the moment I think it will be an early clichy weight or a St. Louis Piece, but I don´t know which of this manufacturs used to make such a concav base on its weights, altough it probably could be a prototype or experimental weight.
I´m still searching for a thing, that will be a proof for one maker, so that we all can be sure, who had made this beatiful piece.
Perhaps I´ll get some more informations when I look at other books from my friend, tomorrow. I´ll let you know
At least thanks for your compliment, regarding my english. I know, its not the best. I always know, what I want to say and also I understand english very well and can read it very fast, but the main problem I have is the different grammar, as the german Language is very difficult, when you try to put english sentences in the right way together.
Have a nice weekend, I´ll post more regarding the weight, tomorrow. Hopefully some of the other experts also have an opinion, which kind of weight is it.
