Charles Kaziun Jr. has been credited with inspiring glass artists to rediscover the techniques of the old French "Big Three" - Clichy, Baccarat and St. Louis. He paid special attention to the brightness and balance of color in his work. His crimp roses are unparalleled and this is a fine example with a lovely gradation of color in the petals from deep red to pink. Signed to the base with his K and hearts signature cane.

Size: 2 3/4" height. 2 1/8" Diameter of Base.

Condition: Very Good. Only very minor display wear.

Circa: 1940s to 1960s.

Marks: Gold "K" on the underside.

Provenance: Spring 2006 L. H. Selman Price Guide and auction. Estimated $1300.00 - $2000.00.

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. . 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 one of two excellent paperweights by Charles Kaziun Jr that I am offering. Both are from my personal collection.
