Default milropa paperweights?

I have two beautiful glass paperweights made by Milropa Studios. Does
anyone know anything about this studio, and have any idea of their
current value? Thanks. E-mail response appreciated.

I have five Milropa weights. This studio was formed in New York sometime in the 1970's. The most well-known glass artists from Milropa are David Hutchuasen, and also Paul Seide and (last name only) Beecham. I probably paid between $100.00 and $200.00 for them. A piece signed by Hutchuasen would be worth the most. Hope that helps.

The name of the last artist..."Beecham: is Gary Beecham. All of these artists have done incredible well. I believe most if not all of these guys are retired. I have three in my glass collection and although I am pretty clear that they are not all that high priced or driving high returns as an investment opportunity, they are quite extraordinary. Paul Siede was the last art director of the studio. Last word I heard was that his past collections and his studio space were devastated due to the debris from9/11. I just purchased one on eBay for around $50. I found my first piece in 1980 at the Holiday Inn gift shop in Davenport, Iowa. Go figure!
