Hi Marcus, the book is the glass buyers guide, 2002, page 228, the paperweight is textured, it is not a candle holder, the description given is ¬£ Kosta paperweight, Sweden, signed, post ww11, 3in, but it does'nt say signed by who? even in 2002 most glass collectors knew about Ann Warff, so why didn't they make the connection if they proport to be experts? also when they state signed, why not state who signed it? was it an earlier designer? or is it Anne Warff ? was she inspired by an earlier artisan ?.
Having read the book again, i am doubious as to a lot of the attributions, i know the book is five years old, but as a guide book surely including who signed a piece is fundamental as a research point for glass collectors?.
