Need help in IDing this paperweight
« on: January 18, 2010, 11:23:07 PM »
I'm hoping someone can identify this paperweight.  The bottom is flat and polished and bears the following:  HH 6/11 901 Fac 27264/81  (I think; the HH is very clear).  It's about 3.5" tall.

There are some features consistent with Murano; however, I believe signatures are rare.  Are all the marks on the bottom the same?  The HH looks very block-style while what I think I am seeing of the other engraving appears to be different.  Any chance of more detailed photos?

Not much help, but I'm trying .... Lily :huh:

Thanks, Lily.  I appreciate your help.  Here are a few more pictures - it's almost impossible to get all the details.

Ellie, I haven't a clue.  :-\  All I can say is that someone put a lot of information on the bottom of your weight and the only HH I can think of is Harold Hacker.  Wish I could contribute more.

Lily :)
