Glass Paperweights / Another Ysart paperweight - is this one by Salvador?
« Last post by paperweights on Yesterday at 01:53:30 AM »
Another Ysart paperweight that I suspect is by Salvador.  Looking for confirmation or correct attribution.  Thanks in advance.

Large 2 7/8" diameter by just under 2 1/4" tall.  The glass has a lot of bubbles and is slightly grey.  The base is rough and has been ground in the center.  Ground is blue.  I have links to larger pictures below.

Do you think it might be possible to photograph the signature more clearly and in larger format as it just blurs when trying to enlarge the pic.
thanks :)
Almost certainly Glasbläserei Schmid ( There is quite a lot of his work on eBay. Here is one for example: with a good picture of the signature, which is almost the same as yours.

I think it might be a Harrachov weight designed by Milan Metelak. Production number 15/3938
Source From Neuwelt to the Whole World page 412.
A pear was also made.
This is a link to a green one on the board.,35060.msg189864.html#msg189864
In the book it shows a pale pink apple and pear.  The photograph appears to show that the apple has no clear casing but the pear does but that might just be the way the photo is taken.

Signature position indicates it is most likely from the USA.  The iridescent pulled feather effect was also very common at that time.


I believe it's German, try to search with Schmid lampenglas. I've come across this signature before but never managed to find out what the FJO stands for.... I was surprized how light in weight and thin the glass was...
