Anyone pin-point paperweight-style pin dish? Murano, Vsart?
« on: September 26, 2006, 01:21:45 AM »
The shape and obvious heft of this pin dish looks like Vsart. Seller is calling it possible Murano. Some of the red canes in the center are oddly unfinished, and the outer rim of millefiori looks more Vsart than Murano. Seller also has a couple of nifty Strathearn "spoke" paperweights.

The item number for the pin dish is http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230032712853.

Definitely a Vasart. You are correct about the canes. The shape is standard "paperweight made into ash tray".  I would guess at 1950s

Thanks. I'm pleased my hunch was on target.
