The sale will begin with the collection of paperweights from Barbara Landale Stitt of Philadelphia. Her collection, stemming from an early interest in her parents passion for antique and contemporary glass, continued throughout her life. As a research biochemist at the Temple University School of Medicine, Barbara brought a scientist?s analytical perspective to collecting and maintaining detailed records. Proceeds from a number of paperweights will be donated to the Delaware Valley Paperweight Collectors Association. Photo: lot 12 Caption: This Chris Buzzini floral paperweight is signed ?90 DA 7/40?
