SOLD! Robert Eickholt Silver Veiled (changing color) Glass Paperweight Opalescent Controlled Bubble Design, signed – USA(OH)
Price includes US shipping and insurance.
What: Signed Robert Eickholt glass paperweight. It is made with silver-veiled glass (only a few glass artists in the world work with it.) Because of that in natural light this piece is transparent with a hint of soft blue and amber colors and in artificial light the color varies from amber to opaque light blue with subtle striping. Obviously display lighting makes a great deal of difference with this piece and it looks spectacular on a light box. The color also changes as you move around the room, making it a very interesting piece. If you prefer the blue put it against a black background to accentuate it.
In addition to the changing color it features a large bubble within a bubble and a fine example of the controlled bubble technique that Eickholt is known for in a ring around the exterior. He has recently retired from glassmaking.
When: Dated 1987, he did a series of similar designs over the next 10 years.
Where: Eickholt Studios in Columbus OH.
Size: 3.5″h x 3″w
Condition: Excellent. There are a few small light scratches on the surface as you would expect with a 30+ year old glass object and a popped air bubble on the bottom of it – see signature photo.
