    Hi there folks.

    I've had this paperweight for a while now and have simply come to the absolute end of anything I can research to identify it.

    Its a little thing, couple of inches wide and less than that tall. really, it looks like a peeled mandarin orange (clementine I guess depending on where you are) with the shape and concave bottom.

    The piece is signed but here's the problem. There is at least 2 signatures, one over-top of the other and the only really identifiable bit is the year 1985.

    It has what I feel are a little odd pulled and feathered lines in the base emanating outward. The only reason you are seeing them in the photo, along with the sig, is the talc that I added. Otherwise they are nigh on invisible and indeed, I completely missed the signatures for the first week I had the weight.

    I haven't even been able to find a weight that I felt was close enough in appearance to even call similar, so that's how tough this has been.

    It really is a lovely little weight making up for what it lacks in size with great color and unique design. It will be a real shame if it goes unidentified.

    Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated.

      keep us posted on any finding.....and maybe try to post another pic here of the signature ( more on a angle to read it better )

      Thanks, I'll post another photo with a better shot of the sig. I didnt initially because, as I mentioned, you cant even see it without talc and even then its so garbled only the date is discernible. maybe a set of fresh eyes though as I have been staring at it quite a while lol. thanks again

      That photo is a bit better but far from great. Honestly though I dont think even if it was crystal clear it would be any help with the engraving being all jumbled together the way it is.
