Unsigned Flower Bouquet
« on: July 28, 2013, 06:12:12 PM »
I have bought this paperweight (7,5x5,5) as a possible Strathearn. Would you confirm this idea or does it rather look like a Deacons paperweight, although without signature? The ground is black and the glass...maybe very slighty grey, but nothing definite.Thank you very much, best regards,
Ma.

Hi.

I am 99% sure it is a John Deacons piece, from the 1980-1990 period, but it looks to be somewhat poorer quality than I would have expected.

Thank you very much Alan, I thought this unpolished base were not from Deacons, although all the canes really look from him :)
