Glass Paperweights / Brian Maytum?
« Last post by LesBeatiques on Yesterday at 10:04:31 PM »
Hello,

The style of this piece bears similarities to work done by Brian Maytum however I'm having difficulties verifying the signature. Any second opinions from those of you more familiar with his work?

It's roughly 4-5/8" tall and has a 2-7/8" diameter, a dark multicolored iridescent overlay with one side facet to display a wispy nano bubble decoration.

Thanks for your help!
Eric

St Mande did use rose canes similar to Clichy. HMM...

I saw some strong similarities to a weight attributed to St. Mande in Robert Hall's "World Paperweights" bottom left pg. 61. If not the same maker as Resco's deffinatly the same maker as the above referenced Selman's.

Glass / Re: Not sure if this is glass or porcelain

if it's possible to disconnect the metal parts, then where there are holes/cuts you should be able to determine which it is.             
The flowers/leaves do look to have been painted on, but the pink and yellow appear to be within the material.
Think it would need to be quite thin porcelain to be translucent.

It looks like Burmese glass, perhaps Webb. Shine a UV light on it

Heres a beautiful (I believe) candle holder? It almost looks like painted glass since it is semi opaque , but again could be porcelain. There are no markings on the base.
