Can you give me more information as to why you think that it is Nourot. Because I found this on their website.

All Nourot Studio pieces are still signed and registered by the same method since the studio began: studio name, series letters, piece number, year and the artist's initials.

That was just what it look like to me at the time.  Also I missed seeing the first character of the signature at the far left.  It doesn't appear to be a Nourot given the additional information.

I saw it as an ititial, S, F or G.  then Menheniots. But I can't find any reference to a glass artist with that name.

I have seen this signature several times - usually as "Cristal Guerandi" - in one case attributed to an Anna Guerandi in Bristol. I cannot find anything about her on the web, though.

One weight also had a sticker "Ortloff" on the base (a shop ?).

What confuses me is one paperweight signed "Farfalla Guerandi". Now - Farfalla is well known paperweight dealer in Germany, and many paperweights they sell have their butterfly logo plus their name etched on the base ... but I have never seen farfalla from the artist's hand added to his/her signature (apart from this one).

Wow Wolf,  now I can easily see it!!  But I would never have known,  I don't 'do' paperweights,  but I like trying to decipher signatures... failed this time!  ???

Thank you very much Wuff, I would have given up before figuring that out. One is being auctioned here http://shop.housingworks.org/lot.cfm?lotID=49673. The name is printed but there are enough similarities to tell me that your right. Thanks again and keep a look on eBay if your interested in it. I have 6 more without marks on them. Care to share some more of that knowledge?

Sorry to put the pigeon amongst the cats (cool type, of course).   But it comes from Argentina!  QUERANDI.

It took me ages to find that out as I have one as well.
