I am trying at the time to identify exactly which Dunlavy artisan created and individually signed this fascinating, and obviously one-of-a-kind paperweight. There is a noted maker of paperweights, who signs his work with a distinctive impressed, block letter logo "Monte Dunlavy", located in a recess on the bottom of his pieces. This piece does have the same type of recess in the center of the bottom; however, there is no impressed logo. There is a hand etched script signature, "Dunlavy" with a similarly inscribed number on the bottom, but not inside the recess. I might speculate that this was a free-form experimental creation of his, perhaps made during some demonstration, or perhaps an end-of-day piece, as we find in vases etc.

Another possibility is an accomplished glass artist that I have found reference to, named Jim Dunlavy. This is a new discovery, and I am currently attempting to pursue this theory. Both of these individuals apparently worked at on time for the Indiana Glass Company. I will update this description if I am able to find more definitive information.

Whoever made it, this is a beautifully unique piece. It stands 4" tall, is a curvy 3-sided shape and features a carefully executed combination of a central bubble, perfectly centered amid a loop of red, white and blue "ribbon". The ribbon swirls and twirls and subtly separates into individual threads of each color. A few smaller bubbles are strategically located amid the swirling ribbon. The effect is a striking portrayal of suspended animation.

This is piece is in beautiful paperweight in lovely condition.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
