IOW glass paperweight - which range - ID help please
« on: November 18, 2010, 05:01:34 AM »
Just bought 2 IOW paperweights, and am wondering about which range they are. This first one : I thought this was Azurene White, but it has a distinct pink ring on the base, and also the gold is in several depths of layers, not only on the surface. It seems to be layered clear, white with gold inclusions, clear, then more gold applied. The pink seems to have been applied with the last layer of gold. Could it be Golden Peacock? or if not then can anyone identify it for me please. Label is the gold square one with black writing from the 90's, although very worn

thanks, JAK
