What paperweight maker signed "GB"?
« on: December 11, 2010, 08:54:05 PM »
I would like to learn more about my first paperweight.  It has a raised embossed clear glass "GB" on the bottom.  It is a pretty piece with five pink lilies with bubbles coming out of a bed of five white "petals" and five large bubbles.

Can you give me any clues what the GB might stand for?
