Lundberg Studios Daniel Salazar Floral Design w/Dragonfly Egg Shape Paperweight 1984. He is well known for his gorgeous floral paperweights, but this is special in that it is oval or egg shaped in design and must rest on a special stand for balance as my photos illustrate.This is an excellent piece, and it is Daniel Salazar at his best. The paperweight is comprised of magnificent and beautifully formed purple violets which wind across the glass, interspersed with leaves and vine. Hovering above is a lovely Dragonfly with delicate wings and coloration. Most unusual is the double effect of globe within globe, adding to the intricacy of the design within. The weight is magnum in size, more than 3 and 1/2 inches in height. This weight is in excellent condition and will come with its required stand. For accuracy, there is a tiny occlusion or sparkle in the glass which is beneath the surface and was created during production.
It cannot be photographed easily because it is so tiny and must have the light catch it "just so" which is difficult to do. The third photo might show the occlusion in a highly magnified state which distorts the size and appearance. This is an intricate paperweight, and in beautiful condition, a prize for any Daniel Salazar collector.
Daniel Salazar is perhaps my favorite American paperweight maker as his floral designs are exquisite.
