1997 Paperweight Illegible Signature Help
« on: December 27, 2017, 07:32:12 PM »
Hey all - picked up this cool dated '97 paperweight at a thrift a few days ago along with a very nice '89 Slotchiver. Can't make out the signature, which is scratched on really thin...I found a very similar 2001 paperweight for sale at ebay with the same mark and the seller couldn't make it out either, but their signature is thicker and a bit better so I've included it - the third photo.

I have also already looked through the wonderful glass artist list in the thread started on this forum by Mike Morgan and none of the names seem to match up.

Here is also a link to the ebay listing of the paperweight much like the one I have, if that will help: http://ebay.to/2BJgIvi

If anyone has any ideas on the maker of this paperweight, I'd sure love your help.
Thanks so much -
Kat

Hi and welcome.  :)
I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask a moderator to remove your third image - can you please repost, using a link to the actual auction instead?
Because of copyright, we cannot host images that do not belong to the person who posts them. But a link to where the original image is, is fine - that way, copyright stays with the owner.
Sorry, I can't help with the signature.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Don't worry about it!  :)
And sorry for not noticing the link you had posted, just that you said you'd got the image from elsewhere. :-[
