M. Einsele(?) ID = Mark Einsele
« on: August 01, 2007, 09:51:05 AM »
I have recently acquired another unusual paperweight:
(http://www.seelentags.de/pw/sonstA5-150.jpg) (http://www.seelentags.de/pw/sonstA5e-150.jpg) (http://www.seelentags.de/pw/sonstA5f-150.jpg) (http://www.seelentags.de/pw/sonstA5g-150.jpg) (http://www.seelentags.de/pw/sonstA5s.jpg)
It is almost square (70 mm x 74 mm) and has a knob on top (height alltogether 63, weight 456 g). The base is concave with a rough pontil mark - and signed (as I read it) "M. Einsele 74".

Has anyone ever heard of this person - whatever the correct spelling might be?

Best regards  -  Wolf

I am sure the piece was made by Mark Einsele, a glassblower in California, USA.

Thank you, Howdynow and especially Mark for speaking up: it is nice to have some confirmation plus some additional info on the maker of a paperweight in one's collection. I actually got the weight via ebay, some 3 years ago, from a seller in Livermore CA.

Thank you also for your direct mail a few days ago, Mark: I was away on holiday, which is why I respond only now.
