Hard to
find,scarce if not rare lamp worked paperweight with the name Botts Martin.Found
in Ohio and was probably made there but weight like this have also be found as
well as attributed to well known gaffer Ralph Barber.Mr Barber is known world
wide for his rose weights.Also lamp work weights like this one have been
attributed to him made while working in Millville New Jersey he is known to have
worked in Toledo Ohio so its not impossible this weight was made by him.There is
a hard to see annealing flaw from the sandwiching of the two gathers of glass
incasing the lamp work a common issue but it will not get worse since its been
this way since the day it was made.priced accordingly
