Flower and leaf paperweight
« on: September 24, 2017, 03:32:20 PM »
Can anyone help with this simple but rather elegant paperweight. There is not much I can say about it except that the controlled bubbles are well executed. The base is unmarked and I can't see anything else that might ID it. It measures 7.5 cm in diameter. Thanks for any info.

 :) I knew that too.  :-* ;)
It's a Jack Allen one, isn't it? Or is my memory playing silly tricks on me again?

I think he designed the original. What you really want is one with a JA cane...

The Scotland's Glass web site agrees it's Jack Allan. There is no JA cane so does that mean it's a later one?

No, JA canes are as rare as hen's teeth in these
