Faceted paperweights
« on: October 04, 2006, 01:35:07 AM »
Hi, i could use with some help in identifying these paperweights,
i have found them on an online auction abd they're attributed as italian.

The designs look italian but the faceted finish and prevalence of bubbles make me sceptical.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

What auction? When, where? These are Czech-made. Almost looks like a catalogue pose. Interesting. Thanks.

Those are all Modern Bohemian weights circa the mid-late 1980s to possibly present day.

Jargstorf's book, page 109 if memory serves, talks about these and has a photo showing weights of like design and faceting.

Here are 2 more examples from my collection:

BTW, someone awhile ago talked about a way to shorten these links, eg, some people are able to simply have there links read as 'link' or as 'here'.
I'd like to know how that is done.
If told, I hope I can understand it  :?

shortening links

Mark, I think the comment to which you're referring has to do with shortening eBay links. I definitely recall Frank discussing that in a recent previous post.

What he wrote was that with eBay links, you click on the Bid link on the item page. When the who has bid page appears (even if no one has bid), the browser link will be much shorter. Highlight and copy the browser link that will appear at the top of the page. This will be shorter than the item description page link. Then paste it into your reply box on the GMB.

If Frank has a way to shorten other potential hyperlinks, I haven't seen it recently. But, I am sure he will reply when he sees this exchange.

This specific thread is stretching too wide and extending beyond the normal monitor boundaries because of the original photo in the first post; it was definitely copied from a web photo with a very long link.

Great collection!
I have only 1 faceted paperweight in my collection (Italian).
I'll post it when I get a chance!

Another way to shorten links is:

[url = http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/ViewPhoto?u=4162494&a=30945251&p=74861294 ] here [/url]

Without the spaces, it will look like this here

Hope this helps.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Thanks for the replies - the auction was a just ending one by an auctionhouse in norway that sells just about anything.

They didn't have any other pics or mention of age/mfg etc. which made it difficult to bid - the price was 110 USD.

Btw - what would be the value of these?

The lot - so i kinda ended up buying them, one for my collection and four to sell  :wink:  

It was hard to tell from the listing what to make of it in terms of age etc, most of the new czech paperweights i've seen looks different and this particular house often sells stuff it knows zip about.

I wouldn't have seen it had it not been mistakenly labelled as millefiori, which is my favorite paperweight technique.
