Strathearn ?
« on: December 28, 2006, 07:45:52 PM »
On http://cgi.ebay.ch/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220062453700 a paperweight is offered as Strathearn. I would usually think of a Bohemian weight as first bet - with such a green "flower pot". I also couldn't find such a weight on Richard More's web page.
What do other readers think it is?

I have sent the following to the seller:
Quote
For information, I do not believe this paperweight is by Strathearn but could be 20th century Bohemian (Czechoslovakian). It might be one of several attributed to Frank Eisner, a Czech who worked in both England and Scotland. But the green pot form is not of the style usually seen in the Eisner weights and this may indicate Bohemian. The flowers have similarities to either source.

Sorry - I had forgotten to mention that I also had mailed the seller, asking on what basis (s)he came to the identification as Strathearn.

Well, with two hours to go and only at £9, I don't think anyone else thinks it is particularly good either!  Probably would make more money if they listed it as Bavarian.

About that Strathearn/Bohemian then....
I don't like it anyway  ;D ;D
I've got one quite like it, but I'd always assumed it was Bohemian (or Bavarian  ;) ) or something.  http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10048/3_flowers_in_pot_side.jpg

Well everyone keeps complaining ebay is keeping the prices down.... I am trying to put them back up again!!  8)

And yes, it was actually very nice in white.  And the bubbles on the leaves were very sparkly and pretty.  I actually liked that one.....but I am not supposed to keep the stock (for very long anyway) ::)
