The Orient & Flume (O&F) Favrile Iridescent Paperweight is small, but packs a heavy punch. It is in the Favrile style, starting with a luminous cobalt core that can be seen when illuminated. The Favrile style was invented by Louis Comfort Tiffany in the 1890's.
The paperweight's delicate 5-petaled clematis-like flowers have intricate yellow and purple centers. They are connected to iridescent blue/purple petals with vines supporting them across the piece. The paperweight is solid but small, as the photo shows. It weighs about 5 ounces and is sure to shimmer on your desk.
O&F paperweights are highly collectible and fetch in the $200 - $1,500 range these days. Orient & Flume produces fine art glass for the collector in Chico, California. These signed pieces capture nature's inspiration in both iridescent and crystal clear glass.
Nationally acclaimed for its excellence in design since 1972, the glass of Orient & Flume utilizes both traditional and contemporary motifs and can be found in the permanent collections of the most prestigious museums in the world.
