Glass Paperweights / Perthshire Faceted Black with Floral Bouquet Paperweight ID
« Last post by davek on December 03, 2016, 07:38:01 PM »
Was was hoping for some help with information on this weight, such as year produced, quantity made out of planned if applicable, and a name if there is one. We have had this for a few weeks and I can not seem to locate it. I have none of the books on Perthshire.

You even managed to get the pic of the swan's base to me in time for me to add it to the above post.  ;D

(You can edit your own post for an hour afterwards, any later than that, you have to ask a moderator, but they're very kind and helpful.)

Glass / Venini or not? Asking for some opinions
« Last post by ScandinavianGlassaholic on December 03, 2016, 06:58:31 PM »
Hello,

I have this vase I picked up a little more than a year ago at a local fleamarket. I didn't have time to fully start researching it till now. I can't seem to find one like it, and seeing that there are a lot of fake/reproduction Venini out there, I though I should ask for some opinions, related to age, authenticity, etc, any information really. Any Venini experts out there that would like to voice an opinion, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Many Strathearn weights have coloured twists.

But if a weight similar to the one here has white twists then a general rule of thumb is "start thinking Strathearn" - and then check all other features.

On balance I agree that this weight is (probably) Strathearn because of the flush-to-the-ground canes and the fire polished base finish. If it had a ground base finish I would put it in the "transitional" category of late Vasart or early Strathearn - even with the flush canes.
