ID help please paperweight with worn signature??
« on: April 06, 2012, 06:26:15 PM »
Does anyone recognize this style of paperweight.  I have included a couple pictures of the signature but they are hard to make out.  Any ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks
Doug

Hi there,

I am unable to read/guess the signature.

This shiny internal design reminds me vaguely of Robert Eickholt's weights, but the Eickholt weights that I have seen had more sophisticated internal design. So I am not sure at all. GMB members from the USA should be able to say more.

Wow,

Thanks.  I did a quick search of Eickholt and found a few examples of the same paperweight.  It appears to be a perfect match.

Thanks Much,

Doug
