Beautiful but signed by whom?
« on: October 10, 2008, 11:10:52 PM »
HI There

I have just found a very beautiful paperweight, that is signed and numbered. But I cannot read the signature at all. It is also numbered S 62/94, or it could be S 62194. I could not get a better pic of the signature. It sort of looks like I Debt! Does anyone recognise it, please? The numbering looks sort of Kosta/ Scandinavian but I am probably way out there too.

Many thanks in advance
Sue

Don't think there are enough letters for Eickholt - but thanks for trying :)

I have been trying to get a better pic of the signature and eventually covered it in pencil to try and make it stand out. Perhaps this may help someone identify it. Could the surname be Scot or Sebt. The numbers are definitely S.62/94.

Hadn't even seen that as an option but now I look.... it could possibly be. Do the numbers make sense it it does say Italy? Thank you!

Best way to highlight etched / engraved signatures is to dust the surface with talc then wipe the excess off - a method used successfully by various members here.

Thank you for that - what a great idea. I tried it and am almost certainly it does indeed say Italy.
