Looking For Information On Glass Paperweight
« on: June 14, 2011, 08:16:12 PM »
Hi. Looking to educate myself on paperweights. I purchased this one. No signatures or labels. Clear  class with the canes as shown. Measures about 3" across X 2 3/4" tall. Any idea of origin/maker age? Thanks

I would say Murano, second half 20th century - but hopefully others with better knowledge of Murano weights will be able to give a more detailed answer.
