Beautiful Orange Red Flower on Roticello Base
« on: September 29, 2011, 11:29:02 PM »
Hello Everyone!
Just purchased a collection Italian paperweights, and this piece came along with them.
It has a bright Orange Red Flower on a Roticello White base.
It has no markings, and wanted to know if anyone is able to tell me about its maker?
Thank you all for your input!

It is Chinese, probably from the 1930s.

I agree it is Chinese - but it is an excellent example. I have a yellow version: mine is good, but not quite as good as yours.

Hi Alan,
I only collect Italian glass, but I might keep this one.
It is very nice indeed!
