Vintage Lotton Signed Art Glass Green & White 1991 Iridized Floral Paperweight
VINTAGE LOTTON SIGNED ART GLASS GREEN & WHITE 1991 IRIDIZED FLORAL PAPERWEIGHT. A beautiful piece of contemporary American hand-made studio art glass created at Lotton Art Glass. The base color of the glass is crystal or clear colored glass and has a satin or slightly frosted finish to the glass with a light iridized or carnival glass coating. It is accented with three green & white flower blossoms, gold vines and gold and fuchsia leaves. This piece has been in my personal collection since 1992. The paperweight is factory ground and polished on the underside so it sits flat and level. It is also signed on the underside Lotton, 1991 and Floral. While the Lotton signature is partly illegible, I believe this piece was created by the glass artist John Lotton. As far as I can tell John Lotton is no longer working in hot glass. I find no website for him and he is not mentioned on the Lotton Glass family website. In my mind this is eventually going to cause the prices for pieces produced by him to increase in value. It is a fine example and gorgeous as you can see from the photos! I do my best to describe all items as accurately as possible and to the best of my ability. Some of my photos may be somewhat lighter or darker than actual to better show detail or color. However, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or with requests for additional pictures.

Please keep in mind these photos can be blown up at least 8X-10X times normal, so anything you see will look 8X-10X times larger in the photos than it really is. Please note: if you see a dark spot in the photos it is from my camera and is not a mark on the piece. It will be either just to the right of center towards the bottom or slightly above center on the right side of the photo. About 2.75 (7 cm) in diameter and about 1.875 (4.8 cm) off the table.
