Paul Stankard Marbles For Sale (Sold Out)


Paul Stankard is widely recognized as one of the world's best paperweight artists, capturing 3-dimensional realism in his glass creations which seem to defy the reality of what should be possible. His larger, complex paperweights sell for tens of thousands of dollars, as collectors recognize the value of Paul's creations which have pushed the artistic realm of glass to places previously unseen. If you like to collect glass which is not only stunningly beautiful, but also a solid investment, then this is the glass for you!

Paul is not nearly as well-known for his marbles as he is for his weights, simply because he has just not made many of them, and probably won't be making very many more. The rarity and scarcity of these marbles makes them even more highly collectible than ever. Each marble has his signature chip with his script signature embedded in the glass, and in the bouquet, it is actually part of the bouquet itself. These marbles will be like nothing else you have in your collection, small and large droplets of organic life frozen in glass and time. They are as fascinating as they are beautiful. Don't miss this rare chance to add a Stankard marble to your collection!!

***Update*** Wow, I guess these marbles are more rare than I thought! Paul sent me a message and said "I made around ten marbles if that many for Bert Cohen maybe ten years ago and have no plans to make any more." I think it's a few more than that, but suffice it to say there are not very many of these marbles, and they're as rare and amazing as they come! I've also updated the names of these marbles to the ones Paul gave to them, which I got from him.

Here's a great 11 minute video from Youtube which documents Paul's life and work if you're interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrJK_rQO0Zk&feature=share&mid=5607255
