Vitrix Hot Glass Studio Paperweight
Also in our collection are four mini egg paperweights (2” high), three with pulled feather designs and one threaded in red and grey. These date from 1984. Another irregularly shaped paperweight with four “arms” with pink pulled ribbons cased in clear is from 1987.
Next up is a Spyrograph, a clear disc with pink and white swirls, from 1990. It is in the original box with a label on the back: “This Vitrix Spyrograph was handcrafted in Corning, New York, using rods of colored glass swirled inside molten clear glass. Designed to hang year-round in a window or once a year on a Christmas tree, it is signed and dated by the studio.”
And, finally, we have a beautiful perfume bottle. It has a blue core cased in clear with a crystal swirl twisting around the body. It is signed on the bottom: “T. Buechner 1996.”
