( I think ) One Helll of a PW .... ?
« on: February 03, 2012, 08:48:15 PM »
 :hi:

Got this from the sale I was at the other day.  Not sure IF this is a paperweight, or just a decorative item?  It is faceted on 4 sides, and then the rest is Frosted.  Has some Gold flakes in it, some bubbles, and swirls.  Has a yellow center in it.  It is 6 inches tall, and about 3.25 inches wide.  Polished bottom with some wear.  Heavy and Solid hunk of Glass.  Weighs about 2.10 pounds.  Not sure if you call this a egg shape, or kinda a pyramid shape.

Any ideas on the Maker, or date made?  Or anything at all??  Maybe that is real Gold in it -- as a bit different than some other flakes, IMHO ??

Thanks as always  :kissy:

It is very similar to what is marketed here as "Rikaro" from Czechoslovakia.  No specific knowledge unfortunatel.  The small base would suggest it is an obelisk rather than a pwt to me.

Hi Ross

That one pic posted was taken from the top down.  Here is a pic of the base (with wear) as the base is a fair size.  The inside reminds me of some of my Glass Eye Studio PW -- but that is just me and my UN-knowledge about PW.  So still not sure (but I think) it is a PW, IMHO (???).  Just a large one

Here is a Pic Polished bottom.....with wear.  Seems like it might have some Age?  maybe

Thanks as always... :kissy:
