Iridescent Paperweight
« on: September 22, 2012, 07:28:26 PM »
Iridescent paperweight - white surface very like Royal Brierley Studio, don't think it is. Could it be Heron or some other maker perhaps?

I thought the pattern was similar to the white RB Studio, I have a bowl. But now I see yours Keith I realise its more spotted or blotchy than the paperweights - Heron is possible or one of the other small studios, shame its not signed.

It does look like Heron to me - what are it's exact dimensions? Is it a slightly "squashed" round shape?

Here is a Heron weight to compare https://picasaweb.google.com/107067405711297858658/HeronGlassPaperweight#5753912025367996530 Yes it is a squashed shape and approx 2" diam by 1" high maybe a bit less.

Will post more pics tomorrow when I am home.

Thanks Adam

I'm pretty sure it is Heron Glass Adam.... you linked to Chris's excellent site... his pictures are so clear aren't they?  I think we are lucky that he allows us to access them.
I have a Heron Glass Studio ellie in your paperweight colourway... very pretty.

Here is the Heron Glass White ellie Adam, so you can see the similarities of the while 'globules' on the surface.
