Salazar is highly regarded as one of the finest art glass makers in the U. His famous art work is on display in many museums throughout the U. This Salazar magnum paperweight features a beautiful white crane with a red cap flying over three blue & white iris flowers. There is a blue ground beneath the iris. The detail on the glass canes that form the crane & iris design is superb.
The variation in the colors for the crane & iris is also superb. The paperweight is signed around the rim (above the bottom) with "Daniel Salazar", "Lundberg Studios", "4-26-97" and D. There is an additional signature of D. I believe the 36 represents this paperweight as #36 of a limited edition by Salazar.The paperweight has always been on display in a closed cabinet with other of my paperweights. The paperweight was always kept out of the sun. Overall, the Salazar flying crane paperweight is in excellent pre-owned condition with no damage and no repairs to note.
