  • An excellent scrambled with a colourful assortment of at least 25 whole complex millefiori canes scattered amongst the partial canes and cane fragments. There are also 2 collapsed-tube roses (image 3) and an extremely rare silhouette - a flying bird (image 4).

The millefiori canes include pink & white hexagons - centred by blue & white stars - and an outer garland with pairs of blue crimps around concentric white tubes alternating with white stardust canes.The...

  • A design more usually associated with St. Louis rather than St. Mandé. Displaying an attractive colour combination - aquamarine, various shades of blue, white & ruby - 5 complex millefiori florets are spaced around a complex centre cane on clear. The garland is composed of 11 white/green roses alternating with blue & white tube...

  • Set over a clear ground, this attractive miniature spaced concentric has 22 yellow-centred, pale-pink roses “hidden” at the centre of the alternating white and yellow tube canes forming the outer garland.
