I think your mark starts WF5 not WFS. 

The paperweight on eBay starts WPS or WP5, not sure here.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Signed 1990 paperweight with WFS code on bottom
« Last post by Tim_B on Today at 03:50:05 AM »
P.S. I found online another WFS-coded paperweight that's the same style, but this time with a very different signature (see photos).

Does this help shed any light on the artist or studio? Thanks!

Wolf, can't thank you enough! I never would have figured that. Than you!

I don't look at signatures very often. They're on the bottom.  ;D

I know you can never judge a piece on a signature, but sometimes it does help, you know  :D :-*

Having found my vase and taken a pic, it's not quite as similar as I'd first though.

I don't know much of le Loup's work, the piece I have is "Encrustation Noir", but these pieces don't really look much like it. It doesn't have that shiney iridesence for a start.  :)
I'll have to get you an image of the mark on my le Loup piece, Anne, because it looks cursive to me. The p at the end goes down below the rest of it. :)

But it was the only signature I know of which does look anything like this. :-[

Leloup signs not cursive, as far as I have seen and I don't think I've seen this shape in his work.

I don't think any of them read Louis le Loup, but I only have one example to compare them with. His signature is illegible and not dissimilar, but I can make out Loup at the end, because I know it's there.

Does anybody recognise the scrawl on these pieces. They are dated 1988-92,
I can't even work out what letters they are!

Grumpy remark!
There is a certain conceit revealed by artists with an illegible signature!!
