Help to Identify the Signature
« on: August 05, 2013, 02:48:31 AM »
Largish paperweight with swirls and random bubbles. Signed to the base in cursive Mary Mountain Stream 12-89 On either side of the etched signature are funny little squiggles. If anyone can help with the name of the artist I would appreciate that. Cheers Chris

Hi, can you rub some talcum powder into the squiggles you need help with and take the picture against the light so the squiggles become shadowed? 
A darker background might help as well. 
Have a go and send in the picture so we can have a look for you.

I also see 12.89,  possibly the date it was made rather than a limited number.
