Large and lovely egg shaped paperweight by one of Orient and Flume's master glass blowers in Chico Ca. Measures 4 1/2" tall and has no chips, dings, or cracks. Engraved O&F and also it's unique number and original sticker. Research leads me to the now retired creator of this piece ED Alexander. I found another VERY similar that had his name also engraved on it. This is definately done by the same artist,retired Orient & Flume artist Ed Alexander AKA Ed Seaira...
