Hello Everyone,
Just acquired this cool paperweight, with curled up snakes, blue iridescent pieces and signature underneath.
I am unsure of the name that is on the bottom, and thought maybe someone here would be able to identify it.
I cannot make out the first name well, and the last name looks like "Jardin"?, the third piece looks like "Italy" and maybe a "99" next to it.
Would anyone care to take a shot at it?
Thank you in advance.
Javier

Hans Joachim Ittig

Hi Wolf,
Thank you very much for finding the name so fast.
I am not familiar with modern paperweight artists, so the name was hard to figure out.
Really appreciate it!

Hi Javier i always admire your taste  , usually in old Italian glass but in the last year or two i have taken to contemporary glass , and i love that piece , but then when i was a little boy i used sneak snakes in to my house down my shirt , fortunately we only have one poison snake in the UK .  :mrgreen:

 :24:  that is pretty hilarious!
Your mom must have had a fit every time.

Over the years I have purchased a few things that are not Italian glass, mostly for their aesthetics or even just their color.
This one was a recent purchase. I got it because I thought it was an Italian artist.
Saw "Ittig" as "Italy" by mistake, but I loved the Coral Snakes in different colors, so I took a chance on it.
