4 Paperweights 2 Signed 2 Unsigned
« on: August 05, 2006, 07:09:35 PM »
Ok, here's some more I could use expert opinion on. I'm trying to learn but I only know the basics so far (At least enough to weed out the carp from the quality)  Here's what I've figured out so far and if anyone can add their 2 cents worth i'd be eternally gratefull.

1/ Signed Zephyr Studio's might be dated but it's hard to read. Probably an earlier piece, late 70's early 80's? Dichroic but how to discribe those splashes  of color?

2/ Signed Caithness has the second mark CIIG, any ideas of the name of this  one?

3/ Unmarked, VERY high quality. Tiny berry clusters maybe rasberry's or strawberry's, lots of 4 leaf clovers, anyone recognise it by the style or design? I've been searching but haven't come up with anything yet.

4/ Again unmarked but great quality, a sprout of purple tentacles over a cloudy white pillow. Again is the design or style recognisable? It has a round  pontil with a line across the center.

Thankyou Frank, I was just looking through the Caithness on your site that is linked to on the recievership thread.  I just converted my sister to a collector/seller she fell in love with paperweights. I'll try and buy her a Caithness for xmas ;)

Zephy weight is iridescent not dichroic, I think. The design elements are applied to the surface and marvered in.

I know this is an old old topic, but all the images have gone. Could they be reinstated please? Adding them back to the board would be preferable to using external image hosting. Ta!
