What is this signed Venini piece???
« on: August 20, 2005, 10:32:19 PM »
Hi Everyone,
What is this piece of signed Venini??? It is vibrant orange on black and not heavy enough to be a little paperweight. It is like a token or an oversized poker chip. It measures about 2" in diameter and only 1/4" tall. Has me stumped! Thanks for your help! :lol:

These were designed as paperweights, very slender and stylish and came in a little velvet drawstring pouch. A few of them in varying sizes appeared in e-bay over last few weeks.
