Eickholt standing disc paperweight - OBU
« on: December 17, 2012, 01:19:32 PM »
I have just acquired a rather lovely standing disc paperweight, with a central core of coppery purple, gold inclusions and controlled bubbles, signed Eickholt 1994 OBU.  Can anyone tell me if the initials OBU indicate that it was made by a glassblower under direction of Eickholt at his studio, or does it mean something else?
The Eickholt signature is identical to all other ones I have so far seen in my searches.
Many thanks :)

Sorry Anne, dunno.

Best guess is that the O stands for Ohio where Eickholt glass is based.
