Unsigned Iridescent Paperweight-A Lundberg?
« on: March 02, 2009, 06:46:39 PM »
Hi all,
 I look to the experts for help on this stunning unsigned paperweight. Could a Lundberg go unsigned?  3.5 inches tall.

Meant to post this on the paperweight forum, and now I am not sure what to do about it.

I have never had (or seen ) an unsigned Lundberg...
and yes--style is similar..but so many artists did this kind of work...
(also...base does not look like a Lundberg)

I've got an idea this might be an early Bruce Sillars of Orient & Flume. I have a similar in design. The picture makes it look as though the weight stands off center or is it just the photo. If so it could be a second thats managed to get out.

Orient and Flume was what first came to my mind as well. The size and color are like OF. I have an OF egg in that shade of blue.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

I would not have noticed-but it is off center ever so slightly.
So....could be an unsigned second from OF
Thank you all for the great info-I will keep looking.
Max-Thank you for your help getting this where it should have been.
