Glass Paperweight Help
« on: March 25, 2018, 08:37:42 PM »
Hello,
I've searched all over the web to try and figure out who this glass paperweight is by.  I found the exact design in bronze that is attributed to a Karin Swildens, but the signature on the glass is nothing near that name.  I hope someone can identify the signature.  Here are photos of the bronze piece, my glass weight and the signature on the glass.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Mod: Please see below for images.

Can't see that as Langkawi.  Their signature is usually very clean.  Here is one off a bowl I have.

We need a better focused picture of the signature,  The reflection and background colours make it hard to read.  I suggest using the sky as a light source, and being careful to avoid reflections, take from a shallow angle similar to this.  Be sure it is in sharp focus.
