    RARE....

    Found this a while ago. Had a hard time finding any DOME weights by Robert Held. Has some iridescent swirls inside it. About 3 inches high. Just because it was signed.....you never know if it is the Real thing. So I contacted HIS website and received these THREE (3) emails back confirming it.

    In the final email..........confirmed by ROBERT HELD himself:

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    """"If it is signed I'm sure it's one of our paperweights. It's probably an older, discontinued style. Robert has been making paperweights for well over 20 years so many of the designs are no longer being made.
    The pieces shown on our website are just the ones that are currently in
    production.""""

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    ""Hi,Yes Robert has made egg-shaped paperweights, we just don't have any in our current line. The particular one you have must be quite old as no-one here is familiar with it. It could be from a very old line or it could be a one-of-a-kind piece or a prototype. We have no way of knowing. I hope you enjoy it. Regards, J. """"

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    """" Hello, I showed the pictures to ROBERT and he confirmed that it is one of hispieces. The signature has evolved many times over the years that Robert has been in business and there is no reason to believe that anyone would forge Robert Held's signature on any glass piece. Skookum Art glass is the name of Robert Held's previous company in Calgary.

    Your paperweight is at least 10 years old; there were not many made like it so you are lucky to have it. Other than that there is nothing else we can tell you about it.

    Regards,
    Robert Held Art Glass
