Bicentennial Patriotic John Gentile Paperweight - image 1 of 11

This vintage and valued John Gentile paperweight features a patriotic American Bicentennial theme with a blue eagle and shield, with stars above and 1776-1996 below. These hover above a base of white and red “puffs” with controlled bubbles.

The bottom has with the shield and the letter G which was the Gentile family crest. Around the shield are embellishments which may feature an eagle. I tried to take pictures of the crest so for positioning purchases, I set the paperweight in a glass bowl. The bowl is not included in this sale.

The paperweight is about 3” in diameter and is about 2.25” high. It weighs 1.16 pounds.

The piece is in very good vintage condition. Looking up through the bottom part of the paperweight, there are a couple places that look like chips within the glass (1” long and .5” long) but the surface is smooth, so maybe that’s how it was created. Also, when I pulled this out of storage, it was a bit oily, which may be indicative of “weeping glass.” However, I cleaned the piece, it seems fine now.

This Patriotic piece would be a valued addition to your Americana collection!
