small paperweight signed zillo
« on: November 10, 2011, 01:40:40 AM »
I just found a small paperweight that is signed on the bottom. The signature looks like zillo, to me. It is in red, and appears to be "under" the glass. The only hit I've gotten on the name "Zillo" when searching Google is for Andrea Zillo, but I can't find anything on that artist's work or how her (his?) work might be signed, or even when she/he was working. If anyone has any info on this artist or can point me to a site that might have information about this paperweight, I'd appreciate it. Thanks very much.

Hi sharons, welcome to the Board.

If you can provide some photos it would help folk to make an assessment. And it would also help to show what you mean by the signature being "under" the glass.

Information on how to add photos to a post is given here:

Any problems, just ask.

Hi there -- Yes pics if possible.

Maybe it says something else than Zillo and the more eyes that view the signature might help.   :thup:

....as long as it does not say *zillions made*  :24:
