  • An intriguing play of light and shade from 8 rows of smokey-grey “C” canes - edged in white - which are set as a honeycomb carpet-ground, over a green cushion with a white underlay. Centering the design is an SL 2006 signature/date cane in a green collar. Numbered on the polished, concave base.(Includes original presentation box and numbered certificate.)

  • A superb design seen through the large, flat top facet: 3 mottled pink & white flowers, buds and curling stems on a bed of dark-green, shell-shaped leaves. The delicate lampwork is encased in a network of swirling blue, pale-green & white latticinio. Unusual faceting - 12 concave, trapezoidal facets slope down to the waist - enhances the appealing...

  • Encased in clear crystal is a nosegay with white, multi-petalled flowers and 2 tightly-closed buds sheathed in dark-green, pointed leaves, which taper to a point above a blue-flashed base.

  • A great weight, a novel idea - meticulously executed! A white marguerite with multi-layered petals and a yellowish-brown centre floats above a ground of complex millefiori canes in various shades of green with a few scattered red & white stars. Modelled after the time-honoured pastime of pulling off petals while reciting “she loves me; she loves me...

  • A striking design: captured in the crystal dome is a black-bodied butterfly with outstretched white/green composite cane wings. The insect is flying over a field of geometric shapes made up of 9 different types of millefiori canes in various shades of green - combined with red, white, brown & blue. The arched canopy of canes is set over an opaque...

  • Floating in the crystal dome is an 8-lobed millefiori star composed of numerous complex royal-blue canes with tiny red/white centres. The star is outlined by orange, green & white cogs. The 4-row garland is set much lower in the dome (see 2nd and 3rd images) and is made up of red, white & blue complex millefiori canes and green, white & red...

  • This design is not illustrated in any St. Louis brochure; however it is dated SL1999. A similar weight - same pattern, same colours - appeared in an L.H. Selman brochure (1999 or 2000) - but with no indication as to whether it was part of an edition. Within the heart-shaped arrangement is the silhouette of a dancing figure and 3 green-centred stardust...

  • Encased in clear crystal is a wonderful array of multi-coloured complex millefiori canes forming the outer "shell" of a ball. Floating deep inside - and visible through the clear top and 6 oval “windows” around the side - is a black-bodied butterfly. The outstretched blue wings bear white markings and brown “eye spots”.Signed with...

Deep within the weight, a black-bodied butterfly with blue & yellow...
