Huge flower basket paperweight
« on: September 26, 2013, 07:30:45 PM »
Saw this for sale today it's absolutely huge probably 7" or 8" curious as to who maybe made it though possibly Murano with the lattice work then my thoughts drifted towards a top French maker. looks top money but really is magnificent.

I have 3 of these; 9'' tall, 5'' diameter.
Made on the island of Murano but I don't know the specific maker.
They are great pieces of glassmanship.

They weigh upwards of 10 lbs.
I paid around $250.00 for mine.
