I bought a copy of Sybylle Jargstorf's book Paperweights when it was published in 1991 in which she devotes two pages to displaying weights by Hans Neidhardt who was a glass artist of German origin living in Venice. In the mid 1980's he collaborated with Ferro & Lazzarini and created a series of weights named Oriental Gardens.
When my wife and I visited Venice in 1994 we found a shop with a lot of old weights covered in dust, I picked one up wiped the dust off and I found I was holding a copy of one of these weights entitled Afternoon In An Indian Garden so we bought it and a picture is attached. I have never seen any more of these weights by Hans Neidhardt come up for sale on Ebay or through dealers and I wondered if any other members have seen any ?
We bought several more weights from this shop including one of a lampwork bird and there is a sticker on the back bearing the name Barbara Del Zorro so has anyone heard of her too please ?
