Help - Pink Paperweight
« on: March 12, 2006, 11:01:43 AM »
I know nothing about paperweights but that didn't prevent me from buying 2 last weekend  :lol: This is the first one pink on a ground of aventurine.  Is this a Murano weight?  It is 3 inches tall and 3 inches wide.

I think this one was from Fratelli Toso. Might be early 20th century.

The very "fancy" cog-like canes and the central structure of the central cane are certainly of the style used in their weights. The cushion of "lumpy" aventurine also fits for that maker - but of course, "lumpy" aventurine may be found in many Murano weights.

Definitely Murano.
