Wanted: C Richardson maker of paperweights in 1994
« on: January 25, 2012, 12:55:11 AM »
I have confirmed (directly) that it can not be Cathy Richardson(  :cry:  ) or her son Colin Richardson - both of whom make wonderful items.  I have put this here on the off chance someone knows of a C. Richardson from other sources.  The wt was bought from Prescott, Arizona off Ebay.

The pwt has a clear core cased in thick blue galss with white frit embedded.  I estimate that the deepest sandblasting goes in c. 2mms and does not reach the clear core - which is visible with a strong light via the pontil mark on the base.  There are 4 sandblasted birds - hand done as they are not quite identical.  Clearly scratch marked "C Richardson 1994".

BUMP!  :)

I tried this in the glass section first but now hope the paperweight experts are more knowledgeable.

I seriously considered that Ray, but decided that most likely it is not, since if you read the Richardson site it is clearly much too early(as I confirmed directly).  Even if it is I would like people's ideas as to possible makers.
