A Rather Unique Misidentification
« on: October 20, 2008, 07:42:16 AM »
Paperweights can seem pretty mysterious to those who are unfamiliar with them. I seen people who thought they were filled with water. I recall a grown woman who would not believe those weren't real flowers inside those Chinese flower weights. Here is something in a similar vein. I've written the seller describing how such a simple design is accomplished. I have two of these in my cabinet.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

The confusion probably arises in part from the perspex paperweight that do have "real" things inside them. Glass, perspex, both clear and hard. The seller in question has obviously never seen or touched a real sea anenome before either and doesn't do David Attenburgh!
