Paperweight ID Help, Please !
« on: April 25, 2011, 12:48:55 AM »
Any ideas ?  This paperweight measures about 3" x 3"; the base is flat and polished.

Thanks.

Ellie

Here are photos of the base.  The markings you see are scratches.

The "Board Information, Help & Announcements" section has information as to how you can resize photos to enable the largest possible photo for us to try and help you.  I have put the same phot on with two different sizings - both legal but you can see so much more with the larger one.  Simply click on both to expand them.  Clicking pon yours makes almost no difference due to there being so small to start with.  Then repost your pictures with a sensible size (in the region of 600 x 600 instead of 150 x 150) and it is highly likely to get a swift assessment by the experts - of which there are many - mee not included - unless it is from Australia.

Ray:  Thank you so much for your input:  much appreciated.

Ellie

ahremck:  You have no idea how much time and effort I have expended in trying to decipher and to meet the requirements for the proper downloading of photographs both for this paperweight and for others in the past.  My apologies for having -- yet again -- fallen short of (over shot?)  those requirements.  Oh and do please explain the Australian reference ?

Hi Ellie, could start an album I find Picasa easy to use photograph your items put them in your album then just copy and paste them to the thread.

Ellie I live in Australia - and try to collect Australian Art Glass.  I have 150+ artists in my collection and about 65 paperweight makers - so I figure I qualify as knowledgeable about Australian pieces.
