Baccarat/Dupont paperweights - both millefiori and lampwork - are believed to have been made ca. 1920/1930 by a M. Dupont in the Baccarat glassworks. Some of the canes were probably original Baccarat canes or were made using old Baccarat moulds; others he made himself. Some weights have spurious date canes such as 1815 or 1837. Although generally not of the same high standard as classic Baccarat weights, they are considered collectable due to the fact that they are usually well set-up and often display intricate canes.
