Help ID this paperweight, please.
« on: May 22, 2008, 07:39:54 PM »
Does anyone out there know who made this?

My very first paperweight some years ago, bought in a shop in Dartmouth, Devon.

There's a thin cover of surface decorated glass, with clear windows (not facets) looking through to the coloured core.

Pontil partly ground out.

All help welcome.  My first posting, so be kind!

I see what you mean Ray, make nice art prints though.  ;D What Ray means is no pixelation or special effects

Hi Ray.   Sorry about the pix; I've been trying to get the file size down to the required limit.  But I overdid it!   My camera gets some very high powered resolution, and I've used some freeware called 'fotopixer' to do the job.

Try these new and improved versions attached.
