  • A large red & white complex millefiori cane is positioned at the centre of the design surrounded by two spaced concentric rings of assorted complex canes separated by short segments of turquoise and white latticinio. Cane colours include violet, green, blue burgundy, pink & ochre. The millefiori is set over a layer of parallel filigree...

  • Separating two spaced concentric rings of assorted complex millefiori canes set over a ground of parallel filigree rods, are short lengths of green & white twisted ribbon. There are 3 roses amongst the canes: a trademark pink/green rose, a white rose with red stamen and a rare white rose with red sepals. Cane colours include cobalt-blue, violet,...

  • A 6-row concentric centred on a large green/white pastry-mould cane with concentric yellow rods. The weight is dominated by a ring of 25 pink & green roses.  In the first, third and fifth rows are alternating canes. The millefiori canes are set in basket of opaque white and translucent aquamarine staves. (Translucent staves are a rare feature!)The...

  • A composite cane with 8 blue, white & pink rods within a quartet of turquoise & white canes centres the design. Encircling the centre cane are 7 concentric rings of alternating complex canes set within a pink & white stave basket.Unfortunately, the basket has a number of manufacturing faults: one stave is missing completely and there are a...

  • A good 2-ring concentric design centred by a complex ruby/white/green millefiori cane. The canes - including a rare turquoise rose plus a pink/green rose - are set on a muslin cushion over parallel latticinio rods.Polished, deeply-concave base with a wide wear ring.  

  • 17 complex millefiori canes - pastry moulds, composite, corrugated & star canes - in shades ranging from coral-pink, turquoise & yellow to cobalt-blue, ruby, amber & green - arranged in 2 concentric rings framing a perfectly-formed pink & green rose over typical Clichy parallel strips of muslin.Polished, concave base with a narrow wear ring.

  • A medium-sized, 3-row concentric centred by one of those relatively rare canes - a pink rose within a pink rose! (See article by Andrew Dohan, PCA Bulletin 1999, Page 12, Fig.4). There are 3 other roses ; a white one (with 7 red/white tubes in the centre), a white & pink rose with yellow rod stamen in the outer row and a slightly elongated pink &...

  • A fine miniature 2-row concentric on clear with a pink/green rose in the centre surrounded by 18 closely-packed canes - including a white/green rose.Polished, concave base with a narrow wear rim.

  • A well-formed pink & green rose centres this 2-row concentric on a muslin cushion over parallel latticinio rods. The majority of the millefiori canes are complex pastry-moulds with just a couple of corrugated canes - in the vibrant colours so typical for Clichy: burgundy, moss-green, aubergine, cobalt-blue, turquoise, purple & various shades of...

  • A small concentric with 21 vibrantly-coloured millefiori canes centred by a large composite cane with 9 violet & white stars around a white star in a green collar. In the first row is a turquoise cane signed with a red “C” and a pink & green rose. In the outer row, is a dark-blue cane with a miniature pink & green rose "hidden" in the centre....

  • An early Clichy concentric with 7 rows of millefiori canes - including a row containing 28 “early pink roses” - sometimes considered to be the forerunner of the trademark Clichy rose as we know it. (See remarks on page 273 of Paul Dunlop’s “Dictionary of Glass Paperweights”). The canes are set on an opaque white ground. Although at first glance, there...

  • Millefiori garlands on an opaque dark-blue colour ground. Looping around a ring of 19 white & green roses with yellow pistils are pink & green and red & white interlaced quatrefoils. The millefiori arrangement in the centre is composed of pink/white corrugated canes encircling a green/white/red pastry mould.Wide basal ring around the concave,...
