Hi, I went to an antique fair last week, lots of nice glass everywhere,
very few paperweights tho. There wasn't much left by the time I got there
except several abstracts by Porsgrund Gifts, I didn't even know they made them!
Cheap glass and not too nicely excecuted so I steered clear of those.
This is what I ended up with tho and i hope someone can point me in the
right direction. Still haven't gotten the Jargstorf book, hoping this week tho.
Here is an image of all three.
One is chinese, but my wife liked it and it didn't cost much,
the other two I don't know, but i suspect german origin on the one on the
right, the orange on the left is a mystery.Chinese Weight
Is this a new or older weight? The bottom is ground and somewhat
polished. Has an old feel to it but I could be wrong
It's a mini.
This is the orange one, a standard size weight.Orange thing
This is the one I suspect has German ancestry, but my evidence is flimsy so don't put too much stock on the German link. Abstract
For your viewing pleasure and in honour of all hallowes eve, a bizarre
weight i found online - a large weight with a suplhide? faetus inside.Weird one
Any thoughts on the makers of these?
Thanks for bearing with me
