Howard,

Mark's album has beautiful roses!  Perhaps you'll find a match.  My eye is not discerning enough but I bet you'll get a post soon to help you out.  Your yellow rose is very pretty.

That footed yellow rose is a Francis Whittemore and should have a 'W' signature cane underneath the green leaves.

large air trap on the left side of the picture

Does the large airtrap on the left side of the picture have a flat base? If not, then it may be a "jetson" style marble by Mark Matthews.  Mark signs his marbles, so there should be a signature at one pole.

Regards,
Larry

Mark:

Thanks for the information.  Any idea of the value on this weight.  Thanks again and have a good night.  Larry, I am not sure about the base since I do not have it in my possession yet, but I will let you know, thanks to you alsp for your help.

The value of any weight is relative to a number of factors.
That being said, $250.00 - $300.00 is a good estimate of the value of the yellow footed Whittemore rose.

OK guys let's see if anyone can help on this next one.  The yellow weight that is the second from the right is signed with an S on the base.  Can someone tell me who the maker of this piece is.  Thanks again for looking and for any help.
