Chris Buzzini history
« on: October 03, 2016, 01:52:02 PM »
I am attempting to organize Chris's weight signatures according to when he worked at Orient & Flume (1973-1975), Bridgeton Studios (1976-1978), Lundberg Studios (dates unknown) and Correia (dates unknown).  I believe he started his independent career in 1986.  I attempted to contact Chris but I believe he is now retired.  I would appreciate confirmation of the the dates I think I know and filling in the blanks of the ones I don't.

Thanks Wuff. Exactly what I needed! I rechecked Chris's Facebook page.  The last posting from Chris in June 2015 stated that after 45 years he was retiring and heading back to California.

Recently his finer paperweights have been among the highest prices for modern American makers. In his latter years, Chris made some of the finest floral encasements ever made. Two examples from our collection ....
