ID help for iridescent apple
« on: January 25, 2012, 03:21:06 AM »
This apple looks quite similar to some of the Mount St. Helen's apple paperweights, but I haven't found any markings on it.  Any ideas would be welcome!  It may be hard to tell from the picture, but it has a sort of iridescent sheen on the surface.

I forgot to mention it's 3 1/2" tall, and 3" at it's widest point.  The base is 1 1/8".

Here's a base shot of this apple.  Looks like it's cased.

That one is better than your others, though the Japanese one is interesting. It's well finished for a start. Where are you? That sometimes helps with IDs. You can add it to your profile if you like.

The apple is the one that has me most curious!

I'm on the east coast, U.S. (Virginia)

Have you thought of Glass Eye Studio as a maker....the style and also the shape of the leaf is very reminiscent,

See this one:

Rosy, I actually came across that exact picture during my search!  I haven't found any additional useful information on their apples yet, though.

I called Glass Eye Studio, and they said if there isn't a mark on the bottom, they didn't make it.  So at least that rules them out.
