Kathy Curnutte, Love the candle stick.  It reminds me of Christmas time.  It's a great piece. 

Comment by BikerBonnie on September 27, 2014 at 10:07pm

Ed seemed to do one of kind things as far as I can find.  I don't know what purpose of this was, but gets a lot of use at my desk.  I love it

Comment by kathy Curnutte on September 27, 2014 at 9:55pm

 Wow Bonnie that's amazing.

Vicki and Tom,

 Can you estimate a value of my candle stick? Wish I had two!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 27, 2014 at 9:47pm

That is amazing Bonnie! Was it specifically made for art brushes or for flowers - as a "flower frog" do you know?

Even though it was probably mass produced as a tourist item for MOMA, I think it would still excite collectors, especially if the pieces are limited?

Comment by BikerBonnie on September 27, 2014 at 9:40pm

Millefiori paperweight signed "ED LANGBEIN" his work in MOMA

Comment by BikerBonnie on September 27, 2014 at 9:11pm

Beautiful Beads!

Comment by vicki hufstetler on September 27, 2014 at 9:02pm

Kathy - LOL there is no such thing as "fake" Millefiori" :) It take a heck of a lot of skill, talent and patience, and you will always see that in the final product!

Nice Basket Bonnie - though I don't think I would call the entire piece "millefiori" because it only features a few elements of this amazing skill! Still very nice!

Here are a few examples for you to take a "look-see" at!

This is the traditional beads we know by this name - they are made in a single rod and "sliced" while still hot!


This example was made by F. Toso - yours looks very similar Kathy???



This is the traditional paperweight we think of in Millefiori design!


This is the bead lot they start with:


And very painstakingly and labor intensive, they turn them into these:


This is why there is no such thing as "fake Millefiori" :)

IItalian Milleflore glass basket I picked up in "live" auction

Comment by kathy Curnutte on September 27, 2014 at 8:34pm

Tom and Vicki,

Thank you. No I can't see any markings or signature.

How can I tell it is true Millefiori or fake?

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on September 27, 2014 at 8:26pm

Chris, your pitcher is by Anchor Hocking, pattern is Wexford, value is around $20-25. USD.  The pink candy with center handle looks like it might be by Fenton.  Can't see enuf to ID. 

Sure is pretty altogether.
