Identify this mushroom paperweight
« on: November 07, 2012, 04:04:08 PM »
I bought this on ebay some time ago and it reminded me of the experimental whitefriars musroom paperweight on one of the British websites.
Could anyone help me with it. It is etched 77.

Hi,
     I think the one you have seen is at JUST GLASS. yours looks similar but I couldn't swear that those canes are Whitefriars. What is the structure of the whole weight i.e. shape, dimensions and weight ?

Cheers,

Hi Tony,
The base is polished and straight.. It is really a nice paperweight. I have never seen one like this especially scratch numbered.. I hoe someone will be able to help me.
