Help Needed With Contemporary Paperweight Artist Signed
« on: October 01, 2006, 02:44:36 AM »
Hello everyone,  I could use some help from a few seasoned paperweight Guru's!  I have a contemporary large floral paperweight, that is artist signed and dated 1999.  Its a stunning piece, great work and clarity, bottom is very nicely finished and polished.  I just can't read the signature and writing and was hoping someone might recognize the signatures and style.
