Eickholt Art Glass Paperweight 81 Ice Planet w Rainbows

May 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment · Collectibles, Ebay

Here is a beautiful one of a kind art glass paperweight made by Robert Eickholt. It is engraved with his signature and the date: Eickholt 1981. Name and date are marked very lightly but they are legible in a good light. I think this paperweight is a fantasy landscape… a frozen ice planet in shades of cobalt and cream… with an overlay of dichroic rainbow dust… the Northern Lights… Aurora Borealis. They shimmer and change, appear and disappear as you turn it around. It is fantastic! 2-1/2″ high x 2-1/2″ wide. Excellent condition… no chips, flakes, cracks or repairs. This paperweight is one of a small collection we purchased from an estate sale. See our other listings for more from this collection.
Info: Robert Eickholt founded Eickholt Glass in 1978. For 30 years he created a full line of unique and wonderful art glass… paperweights, perfume bottles, vases and sculpture. All of his pieces were made by hand so no two are ever alike. In 2008 he retired and closed his studio.

    Does this also have the letters Emch.I have a glass egg that I purchased on the OUter Bank of NC and it is signed with what appears to be his signature. However the i is not dotted. I am trying to find out if this is indeed a Eickholt.
