Iridescent Paperweight - Identification Help / Info Please
« on: July 21, 2011, 01:19:48 PM »
Hi,

Hoping someone might be able to throw some light on this Iridescent paperweight.

Measures 3.25 inches tall and 3 inches wide and weighs 601 grams.

Smooth, polished base, no makers marks.

Searching the board, seen a couple of other iridescent paperweights, namely, Midsumer glass and Neo Glass, although not sure either of these fit the bill...? :-\

All thoughts appreciated.

Many thanks

Greg

Looked at a few Heron paperweights, looks like a good fit.

Out of interest, saw a few comments, articles about Heron Glass, I understand that they have sadly closed down recently.

Many thanks,
Greg

Heron glass furnaces stopped producing glass around 2 yrs ago and now it's sort of merged with Cumbria crystal
