new weight george sarfi
« on: September 15, 2011, 05:14:22 PM »
came today in the post, a big lump of 4" across and  and just over 2.5" high, my guess is a George Sarfi weight , i've had 3 of his weights before as members on here still might have them, the dome is clear not blue as in the photos , the flower is floating above a solid blue ground with a complex millefiori cane in the centre and the base is polished flat,  any thoughts if it's a Sarfi weight

Hi Ray

Hum very strange - composed a reply posted it and it disappeared ! try again

I did a double take when I saw your string as I saw THIS! listed on e-bay.com
and I knew that it hadn't finished !  Identical to your new acquisition!

I still have one of the miniature Safri weights 1 1/2" diameter and the
subject matter is identical to your new weight, ground is cobalt but the
base is fire polished. Looks as if he must have learnt a few things
between making my miniature and your new example

Best regards

Derek

that one in your link Derek is a better set up than mine, the millefiori cane is much clearer and the petals are more lined up, mine must have been a trial piece lol, as George did not make many weights i wonder why there seems so many in the UK

Ray's example is Modern Chinese.

Care to elaborate as to why it is?

The central canes are modern Chi as is the base. These are seen frequently on ebay.
