Glass Paperweights / PART 2. ID? Help please
« Last post by frnkvdw on Today at 12:05:33 PM »
Hi,

Iím new at this message board, and a novice paperweight collector, mostly
paperweights I find at local markets and thrift shops. Often cheap Chinese
paperweights, but every now and then a little jewel pops up.

Could anyone ID the following 2 paperweights?
I wonder if they are of the same origin?

Both paperweights have some age and wear, and are clearly not new.
Also both of them, although very different in design, have exactly the
same setup; a ground up to halfway of the dome, in the middle a controlled
bubble deeply sunk into ground. From the bubble sprouts a web (B).
In both paperweights, the glass has a greenish hue.

B
has a polished base, and a diameter 8,4 cm x height 9 cm

(read PART 1. to see first paperweight)

That's nationalised industry for you and anything coloured would have been acceptable immediately post War

They are called last drop glasses and don't seem particularly uncommon when you do a Google search

Glass / Re: Heavy light ruby vase, whitefriars / austrian oberglas?
« Last post by chasdevlin on Today at 09:43:27 AM »
I've been looking into Oberglas & Igrind for an unusual textured vase ( different to yours here) I have, but without any luck. I've now started to think 60s/70s Japan as they were known to produce bark/ textured pieces in quite unusual shapes..so perhaps that's a possibility for yours too. The problem is that area is so undocumented.
