LOL - I  did not even remember the paperweight until I looked at the photos -  but it is always good to hear of other art glass/paperweight Aussies and I DO now recall this being especially nice.  Thank you Trevor! And well done for breaking your record  ;D

This paperweight is by Marc Kalifa of Maleny in Queensland, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland about 95km north of Brisbane. See the image of a similar weight below (four years earlier than the weight in question, so not surprisingly a little less developed) and the signature from a different item, showing the numbering scheme.

The original poster is located in Australia it seems, thus making an Australian source that more likely.

I've just smashed my new personal best record, set only a couple of hours ago. This solution is being posted 6 years and 66 days after the original query!

I know this is ancient history, but there is every chance that Cathy B has guessed correctly in Reply #8. I cannot see the sig in the photo - too small and out of focus. However...

Julio Santos did make many paperweights (and other objects) full of bubbles. I don't have any such weights myself to show, but three such can be seen on the websites of other Australian collectors here and here and here.

A Google search for images turns up several others, mostly from recent ebay listings.

This paperweight is signed OM and made by the noted Australian glass artist Setsuko Ogishi at her Ogishi-Mizuno studio at Rothbury in the Hunter Valley north of Sydney. See the two examples below of the signature and a sticker from the studio. She has an extensive website here.

There is a similar apple paperweight on the website of an Australian collector here. It doesn't show the signature, but that collector lives in the Hunter Valley and knows his Ogishi (and other) glass.

I note that this solution is 5 years and 80 days after the original query was posted. That is a new personal best for me, up from my previous record of 4 years and 354 days, seen here.

I hadn't looked before for stray Australian studio glass in the Paperweights section of the GMB. Who knows what else I may find?

Germany / Help Please - Large bowl ID needed. ID = Walther "Libelle" pattrern

I am hoping someone can help with identifying this bowl. It is similar to Walther's Luxor pattern, but clearly not the same. It measures 10 inches in diameter and 2.75 inches high - it has no markings. Thanks in advance for any ideas

Thanks Christine, it is a spiral. This made me think it is extremely fine threading...
