Paperweight ID
« on: July 25, 2012, 12:57:12 PM »
Hello,

I am hoping someone can help me out with an ID on this paperweight.

I was thinking Murano but I was not sure if deep concave bases were a feature on Murano paperweights as I am a novice.

Hi, not my area BUT my money would be on Old English. Maybe falling into one of the "unknown maker" categories or Arculus.

 I'll leave that to the experts who will reply soon enough.

Cheers,

Thanks... I think you are spot on!!

 After a bit of research I see that it has the "7/6" cane in the paperweight used by Arculus.

I was no where near with my prediction....
