Is this a Fratelli Toso paperweight?
« on: January 06, 2012, 11:14:47 PM »
Hi, I got this paperweight from an estate of a paperweight collector, but unfortunately, there is no label on it.  It has cogwheel millefiori with tiny placed bubbles between them.  The grouping is on a copper aventurine base.  It seems to be a high quality paperweight, and I was thinking it could be Fratelli Toso, but I haven't found pictures of labeled Fratelli Toso pwts on the Internet with a similar base.  Do any of you recognize the maker?  Thanks so much for your help!

 :hi: there:

Not sure who made it????? -- but FT would be a good guess IMHO.  I like the adventurine in it  :thup:

Oh, honestly, I don't know how I missed this thread--I did a search on "Fratelli Toso paperweight" and thought I clicked on all the responses, but obviously missed this one!   :-[   I guess I got sidetracked when one of the threads said to look at the Murano Project paperweight web page--I didn't see a really glittery base example there and must have forgotten to go back and check the rest of the threads.  The thread you referenced clearly shows a base like mine, so I am comfortable with the FT attribution.  Thanks much!
