Luxurious Gorgeous Isle Of Wight Iridescent Pinkberry Egg Glass Paperweight For Sale

Luxurious Gorgeous Isle Of Wight  Iridescent Pinkberry Egg Glass Paperweight

Luscious Luxurious Lovely

Isle of Wight Studio

Iridescent Pinkberry awesomely detailedglass egg paperweight, from the Pinkberry collection,featuresa crystal clear egg shaped body, with a pink / cranberry iridescent surface, with just gorgeous specks andvining. It really is an amazing piece.

Since Isle Of Wight Studio stopped etch signing their pieces years ago, relying on the lovely sticker instead, this piece is not signed, and the sticker has been removed.

Sadly Isle Of Wight Studio closed last year, due to financial issues, though at this time, Michael Harris's children are planning to re-open in a smaller facility this autumn. The Isle Of Wight product is so exquisite, and Michael Harris (founder) was so influential as a glass artist,I surely hope they succeed.

This piece is roughly 2 1/4" across, and just over 4" tall.

This item is in great condition. No Scratches, No cracks, No Dings, No Dangs, Not even a Darn. Like every paperweight, vase, or piece of art glass, light scratches on the bottom, from normal shelf wear, are to be expected, and will not be noted here.

I have included a photo with a Fresca can, to help show the scale. The Fresca is NOT included, though, if you add an extra 10 bucks to your payment, I'll throw in the can.

THE HARRIS DYNASTY

For over fifty years the Harris family has been involved in the design and manufacture of outstanding decorative studio glass. Michael Harris (1933-1994) was a prodigiously talented and pioneering designer and craftsman. He graduated from the Royal College of Art with first class honours in 1959 and later became an RCA tutor, setting up hot glass facilities there in 1967. The following year, making what can only be described as a very risky career move, he founded Mdina Glass in Malta, remaining there until 1972, when he moved back to the UK. Together with his wife Elizabeth, in 1973 he founded Isle Of Wight Studio Glass, setting up the studio in a picturesque location at Old Park, St Lawrence. He continued with this highly successful venture until his premature death in 1994.

His two sons, Timothy and Jonathan, have each become innovative glass designers and master craftsmen in their own right, Timothy mainly working with hot glass, and Jonathan as an engraver and carver. In 1999 Jonathan established Jonathan Harris Glass in Ironbridge, Shropshire, whilst Timothy remained with Isle of Wight Studio Glass, continuing after the death of his father as the creative energy, master craftsman and managing director. Sadly at the end of 2012, circumstances were such that the company was forced into liquidation, and it seemed likely that the family tradition, at least on the Isle of Wight, would come to an end.

At this juncture Michael’s younger brother Richard Harris stepped in, acquiring most of the assets of the old company and setting up a new one. Richard and Timothy are now working towards re-establishing the family firm on the Island and continuing with the manufacture of this aesthetic and outstanding product. The studio at Old Park was no longer considered suitable and it was decided that a move to new premises is required. The task of dismantling the existing studio and storing the large pieces of equipment such as furnaces, glory holes and annealing ovens was completed in May 2013. Premises for a new studio sited at the Arreton Barns Craft Village have been acquired and currently the studio is being fitted out. It is hoped that production will restart in the late autumn of 2013.

I have developed a few personal policies for doing honorable business.1) While the customer is NOT always right, the customer is ALWAYS the customer, and must be treated with honesty and respect at all times.2) YES, while I only ship via US Postal Service, I will happily work with you to make the shipping as economical as possible.

*YES, I will always combine shipments if you have offers on other items, just let me know.

*YES, I will hold a shipment for a week, while you continue to fill a box, just let me know.

*YES, I will check the rates for you, to determine whether it's more economical to ship in a flat rate box, or in a "zone rate" box.

*YES, I will happily ship First Class for international shipments, however since they are limited to 4 pounds, sometimes, it's cheaper to ship one priority mail flat rate box, than to ship two first class boxes.

The way I see it, the less you pay for shipping, the more you have left to spend with me.3) I am not perfect, I will miss a large scratch, a ding, a flea-bite, etc. If you ever receive a piece that is not as described, not as pictured, or damaged in some way, not specified in the listing, then I want it back. I will issue a full refund, including the shipping, both directions. I won't, however, renegotiate the cost, due to damage, if the discrepancy is important enough to report, then I don't want you to keep the piece, even at a lower cost. On the other hand, if you want to return it because you changed your mind, or don't like it, I will happily take it back (within 30 days), however you will receive a refund for the purchase price only, not the shipping cost, and you will be responsible for the cost of returning it.I trust you find these policies fair. Thank you for reading this, and, in advance, thank you for your patronage.

This piece will ship the next business day after receiving payment.
