Ebay 9K pw8
« on: February 16, 2013, 09:23:23 PM »
I spoted this last week and realised it was well made but not being sure of the maker thought to bid up to 80-100.
When it went past 500 I thought "oh I probably wont be buying this one" Then it ended at over 9000 I was amazed. Can anyone throw some light on this please? who made it and when?
Cheers.

I think it was a very rare Pantin paperweight - hence the price.  French, 19th century.

I wonder if the seller has been able to stop smiling?

I don't think you can use the term usual but it is probably a very good price for the buyer.

Hi everybody,

Many thanks for posting this question (and Alan for answering it). I had spotted this weight as old French but was unable to decide which maker...
