Charles Kaziun, Jr., began a six-decade career in glass in the 1940s, producing some of the finest paperweights ever made, and inspiring many others about the potential of awe and beauty in glass. He was one of the pioneers involved in re-discovering the techniques of the old French glassworks. By the mid-1940s he was making a wide range of millefiori paperweights (many including silhouettes), lampwork and related items, such as scent bottles. He perfected the art of miniaturization and created the most amazing detail in the smallest of spaces.

During his lifetime he used a large variety of "K" signature canes. His later work often contains, in addition to the signature cane, a small gold foil "K", embedded on the underside of the weight or color ground.

This is a very charming piece. An upright yellow lily, with a red and orange center, and four long green leaves, grows from gold-speckled dark turquoise ground, over a clear footed base. The motif is tilted.

Size: 1 7/8" Height.

Marks: Gold "K" on the underside.

Circa: 1960 -1970.

Condition: Very Good. Minor usual display wear.

Provenance: Fall 2005 L. H. Selman Price Guide.
