Paperweight Colognes At The Smithsonian|
Posting Number 3545 Date: 05/10/21 Return to Posting List
It was good to see that there is a Steuben Blue to Red Cintra and Green Cintra Paperweight Colognes at the Smithsonian, even though they are not on display. Although this is a relatively rare piece, several years ago I bought and sold THREE of these in a period of about a year.
One was purchased by a Steuben collector who passed away shortly thereafter; one was sold to a major collector whose collection will probably be sold within the year; and the last one was sold to a collector who will pass her collection on to her daughter. The last two went into collections that had multiple Paperweight Colognes, one of which includes a rare matched pair. A case with a shelf of these is impressive.
I bought and sold many Paperweight Colognes but never kept any for myself. Duh!
