  • A mystery 19th Century Continental weight; the clear crystal is set with 23 millefiori canes - and it was probably made in an - as yet unidentified - French glassworks. Amongst the relatively simple 3-colour star canes are a number of extremely complex canes such as the white tube -set in ruby glass - which is filled with 11 stars and tiny pink rods....

  • Probably made in a - currently unknown - French glassworks, the weight is filled with white tubes - some as concentric tubes, some with coloured overlays, others containing a variety of 6-point stars. Scattered amongst them, however, are 7 or 8 extremely complex millefiori canes - so it must surely have been a glassworks experienced in producing...

  • A neatly set 19th Century 3-row concentric around a 4-cane centre cluster on clear. The canes are well made although not particularly complex. The colours - red, white & blue - could possibly indicate a French glassworks, but so far, it has not proved possible to match the canes to any of the known French glassworks. But the set up is certainly...

  • An attractive 19th Century miniature - but difficult to attribute to one of the well-known paperweight makers. Apart from a couple of slipped canes in the first row, the other canes are neatly set around a slightly off-centre pink/white composite cane. The turquoise/white corrugated canes containing blue/white rods and the brown corrugated rods encircling...

  • Although for years weights like this were attributed to Bohemia, more recent research points to an, as yet, unidentified French source. The glass has a darkish tint. 5 large white/green roses centred by 6 pink/white tubes encircle a white stardust cane which also has a pink/white tube in the centre. The outer garland consists of alternating blue &...

  • A mystery weight of unknown origin in fine heavy crystal. The whole and partial millefiori canes indicate the work of a skilled glassmaker. The colour palette is bright: candy-pink, lime-green, peach, yellow, blue and white with a sprinkling of copper aventurine. A centre bubble rises “on a stalk”; 6 other bubbles are spaced around the...

  • French? Bohemian? Opinions differ! Set in a swirling turquoise & white stave basket are 5 rows of cog, crimp, six-pointed star and stardust/bull’s-eye canes around a central set-up with a stardust and bull’s-eye canes. A bold choice of colours ranging from turquoise, pink and blue to ruby, white and olive green.The small, almost flat, base shows heavy...

  • A colourful ribbon in the shape of a cross, surrounds a large millefiori centre cane. Around the cross are white canes with extremely complex millefiori centres, which look almost like flowers. A wispy blue/white/red torsade encircles the perimeter of the maroon ground. A well set-up weight with none of the “carelessness” so often found in...
