Glass Paperweights / Id Help Needed . Who made this paperweight?
« Last post by Krecik on Today at 03:38:45 AM »
Who made this paperweight?  The glass has a dark brownish Grey tinge ?

Welcome to the club -  beware the Ysart bug - it will empty your wallet!! ;D

I'm glad you "fully understand"  - I have to read it about 5 times and then still get confused with the long / shortwave UV reaction for different ages of the glass  ::) ......I try to stay away from weights and stick with the Ysart glass ware.   :D

Hi, SophieB.
Thanks for the info.
I will phone him in the new year and ask how much he charges for polishing.

I watched that for ages :) it's a beautiful piece of glass.
I did wonder if it might be Bohemian sort of turn of the century.  It reminds me of a perfume bottle I have that is still as yet unidentified, but there were a number of makers who produced this deep amethyst glass at that time  including a German maker I think. Sorry memory fails me on giving names at the mo and I've not time to look them up.
So that could fit in with Christine's suggestion of comb tray or it being part of a dressing table set.

You could try searching for amethyst facet cut vase and it might throw up some makers for you to investigate a bit more (including searching on here for Bohemian facet cut vase as that might also throw up something).

Hi Joe,

The name of the glass restorer is Richard Lamming (and not Richard Lamb...). Sorry!!!;-)

I did buy that cobalt blue fly/wasp catcher I mentioned and have finally gotten around to taking a pic.

I still wonder if this is genuinely antique or some sort of reproduction.
Thanks Kevin & Christine ,

I fully understand now and I was referring to the weight which started this thread (with regard to the shortwave UV reaction).

This really does elevate glass sleuthing to a forensic science  :D

I will try to invest in a shortwave UV device ...I've got the Ysart bug now ...caught from a paperweight  !!

Cheers, Mike

Moser is unlikely IMO

found something very similar in design on the net but difference of opinion on ID.  One person says Moser and someone else says Muhlhaus???????
You can also get canes in Vasart weights with very pale green/yellow (i.e., uranium) that glow bright green under UV
