Frank Eisner Paperweights ?
« on: October 14, 2012, 09:05:39 PM »
I have been asked by a friend if I could get an identification for these two paperweights, one was bought at a local auction house and was attributed to Frank Eisner the other was purchased in a charity shop. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, they both look to be typical of Frank Eisner's weights.

i've had a few of these weights in my time.. but one thing i have noticed is that some of the petals have a smooth surface and others have like a waffle pattern in the same weight ...
