Spaniel paperweight i.d.
« on: August 14, 2011, 07:19:12 PM »
Hi all

Bought this paperweight at an auction, for some reason. It is quite heavy 850gms and stands 6" tall, base 4".
Is this of UK origin?

Many thanks for any info
Malc

Possibly by Formia - see what people say...

There are stripey penguins, stripey ducks, stripey dogs, etc. everywhere. I suggest very new from somewhere

You are right Christine.....there are a lot of them about.....Leonardo Collectables did them as well as Crystal Clear Collectables.....I wonder if these names are distributor houses, along with Vincenza for items made by the same glass works?

I would say so, and maybe not even made in Italy.

I agree...trouble is, 'Leonardo' and 'Vincenza' SOUND so Italian!!

Some of them are quite cute, so please don't think we are downgrading yours Malc, it is just that a lot of sellers hype them up a bit, and that is what is wrong.
