and the winner is.......Fratelli Toso
Thank you Leni and KevH!
I sure appreciate your help. You kept me going through all the dead ends.
Leni, I had a lot of fun on the wonderful websites you suggested and KevH I am very glad to know what to call this shape.
I searched: Trocadero.com>Paperweights>Italian
"Molta Bella Glass" is offering 5 pre-1960 Fratelli Toso weights that seem to have a similar heritage to our mystery guest.
individual petals on flowers
clustering of flowers
shape of gather of glass under the flowers (field?)
clarity of glass
I would still like to find one with 4-sided facets and cut motifs like this one.
So it's research at the bookstore then I'm off to discover my next fascination. Some days that's anything that glitters - but I'll try to stay focused :lol:, Wanda
