Signed 1990 paperweight with WF or WFS code on bottom

Post by Tim_B on February 25th 2017, 5:05 am

Hi, can someone please help identify the glass paperweight shown in these photos? It's 5 inches tall, 4 inches at the widest, and 1 inch deep.

It has a 1990 date, a signature on the side that seems to start with an "E," and what looks like "WFS 0014" on the bottom.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I was able to get the answer from another glass message board, and I wanted to post it here in case anyone is wondering about this piece.

The artist was Eric Brakken at Glasshouse Studio in Seattle. I emailed the studio and they confirmed it.

They even still make a modern-day version of the same piece: http://www.glasshouse-studio.com/image/99181235.jpg

The WFS is their code for Weight Flat Sided. (Other codes they use include WSF for Weight Single Flower, WRA for Weight Round Abstract, WOA for Weight Optical Abstract, VFS for Vase Flat Sided, VFP for Vase Footed Petite, VFA for Vase Footed Abstract, etc.).

Best regards,
Tim
