Help needed, signed 1979 paperweight. ID = Larcomb & Wicht, USA
« on: January 28, 2017, 03:02:38 AM »
Hi, can someone please help me identify the glass paperweight shown in these photos? It's pretty small (about 3 inches in diameter), has a 1979 date, and is signed with two names I can't make out.

Thank you in advance!

I'm reading it as probably the design name Jasmin & Wicker?

Not sure of the maker -- just trying to GUESS at the signature in case that lead somewhere -- or no where

Looks like: ??  something like LARSON & WICKHAM or something like that in My opinion.  Just a guess as to what I think I can see in the signature ,,,,Or Larson, Lawson ???

The first part is (Arnold) Larson (I have several more examples in my signature collection) ... some info here.
No definite answer on the second part.

In think that is Larcomb & Wicht. They had a studio in western Ohio for a while and then split up. It looks like their work. do a search for them and see what you think.

I stand corrected - the similarity of the leading L has mislead me. I was a bit confused about the squiggle at the end, which now turns out to be a "p".

Sorry for that - Wolf

Wow, this message board is great!

Thanks to everyone who tried to help, especially to Fuhrman Glass for identifying this. Now that I have a name to Google, I can see that it is indeed Larcomb & Wicht. :)
