Do you know who signed this?
« on: November 29, 2010, 10:15:45 PM »
I purchased this paperweight a few years ago and found it while cleaning up my collection. I would like to see if any of you would recognize the signature?
It's 3 3/4" tall and has a very sharp cut facet (window, so to speak) and inside it shows off a very wonderful (candle & flame tip) if you place it on a light pedestal!
As you will see from the photos included, it has an iridized surface except for where it was cut on the face and bottom. I thought after looking at the signature again, that it was someone at Kosta Boda, but I am not sure now. If you can just peek at the photos I posted below, maybe someone will recognize this signature?  The last photo is the PW under an LED pedestal.  It is one of my favorite PW's.

Thanks to all in advance....... :hi:
westred......yea, ya betcha!

It's not a Kosta Boda signature. For what it's worth, I see R (or K) V Stephen(s)  I'm sure a PW aficionado will know.

I see (maybe) at the first:

KB or RB, or KZ, or RZ.....???? with a *   /    * after it .... before the other name ??
then maybe Stephen, or Stephenson....

...............or maybe none of those.  Just talking out loud here... :spls: :spls2:
