"R" hot-stamped weight identification
« on: October 16, 2012, 11:33:42 PM »
I have a small pedestal style paperweight with a small snake that is hot-stamped on the bottom with "R". Does anyone know what artist uses that as their signature?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you SO much for trying to help me!  It's just been bugging me who made this weight, any input would be appreciated. I learn so much from this Board.

I suggest you try and contact Rossi Glass of Canada.  Have a small pear stamped in this way - although the font is different.(see photos).

I have images of three more R-stamps - all different - and different to the one in question here or the Rossi Glass one.

Obviously, someone using an R may have used different R's with time - but altogether 5 different R's suggest to me that more than just a single artist in involved.
