Mushroom, panda and hedgewhog paperweights
« on: July 26, 2008, 04:27:15 AM »
Hi everyone

Just bought some very nice paperweights, some have labels, some do not. Those that do are all Murano.  Needless to say, it is the label-less ones I would like some help with! One is a mushroom, cased clear, with a spatter glass top. It is 4 1/2" high.

I hope I am putting this link up correctly -

Is this a Murano one as well?

The panda is just gorgeous. He is so like the labelled Nason elephants I have had before that I can't get away from that thought. He is 3 3/4" high.

The hedgehog has green, white, brown and cobalt spatter. very nicely made and this is the only one that I suspect may not be Murano. But I bet I am wrong and am very stuck! He is 3" high, 4 1/4" long.

Thanks in advance. I hope putting the links on was better than trying to add photos. Not really good at the forum yet...

I'd be looking closer to home - more likely to have come from Norfolk then Murano.  ;)

Someone who knows these will be able to say which are Wedgwood and which are Langham :)

Thank you! Although I am not sure it is that much closer to home, as I live in Australia  :D But I am a Brit....

The mushroom is Wedgwood (see here) and the panda (see here ) but not the hedgehog. He has a matt bottom, Wedgwood stuff, even unmarked always seems to have a shiny bottom.

Thank you Christine - no wonder I love the panda - I collect the more usual jasper and ceramic Wedgewood. Will watch for hedgehog ID, with great suspense.
