Antiquerose suggested that I share some ifo and pics of regarding Chalet paperweights as she felt it would be of interest - I am new to the GMB and would love to participate more but am somewhat at a loss to what and where!
Anyways, Chalet Artistic Canada did do paperweights and this is a signed one. They are very rare - Maestro Panizzon worked at Chalet from 1963-1975 and mine was the first one he had ever seen! In fact, he just about fell over when I showed the signature to him (he was having a sneak preview of the Chalet glass exhibit that is currently mounted in Cornwall, Ontario) as he had challenged me "Not Chalet"LOL. They also did mushrooms and animal figurines and some of those given size, shape and weight could be considered paperweights but weren't specifically designed for that use.
