Hi chezza, welcome to the Board,

When you show your pics, if you would like information about any of the weights, please start a new thread for each one, otherwise things get confused too easily with mixed replies. Also, please try to keep threads to a maximum of four or five per day.

Hi Sophie.  Regarding my earlier post (reply 2), the left hand paperweight is a (very nice) Bacchus, and the right hand one an antique Baccarat.

Ran into a nice auction today.  Some nice weights went for really great deals.  Here are a few I picked up.  Passed on a few I probably should have grabbed and vice versa ;D.  I'll let you test your ID skills!

Nice 'little' lot. Well done  :hiclp:

I have to try and ID the lot before going to bed:

Top: Trabucco
Middle (left to right): Ebelhare, Ebelhare, Murano
Bottom (Left to right): Rosenfeld, Ebelhare (his Bacchus period), Jim Brown (not sure of this last one, though...)

Nice job. It is Jim Brown, from 2001. I wasn't sure if the one is Murano or not. Was leaning that way as it was unmarked and unfamiliar to me but it is a nice piece and the price was right. Was one I should have passed on.

I won a lot of 19 paperweights at auction a couple of weeks ago, bidding from an image, but only picked them up Friday. I knew that most were Murano and Chinese, but there were 3 old millefiori weights, and what I thought was a Vasart or Strathearn spoke lurking at the back of the group. I got a nice surprise when I collected them (see below) - so definitely a good buy!

Hi Alan, :hi:

Welcome back. I hope your week was fruitful.

Yes, I can see why you'd be feeling rather smug  >:D... Another great auction coup!!! :thup:

Can you tell me what the top right and bottom left weights are?
