i DO NOT RECOGNIZE THIS LABEL -ANYONE?
« on: March 31, 2011, 05:35:46 AM »
This paperweight belonged to my aunt for many years.  It has a label on the bottom which is partially unreadable.  Does anyone recognize the logo on this label?

Looks like a retailer's label if it belongs to the paperweight in the previous pictures, as that looks Chinese IMHO.

Hi, the label is "Seapoot Group" - a US import company. I have seen these labels on Chinese paperweights.

Thanks.

I agree - 'Seapoot'. I have seen the label a few times, always on Chinese imports.

Thank you for the input!  I was wondering if this is a current company or an older company?

Hi.  I don't know when they started, but they are still very much in business. Google 'SDSSeapoot Group' and you will find that they are based in San Francisco (I must have just about driven past their offices when I flew in and hired a car there a few years ago).

They are also described as an importer for products from Zibo (Shandong, China), who are one of several well known Chinese manufacturers of art related items, and glassware including paperweights.
