  • A closepack design with 7 butterfly silhouettes (3 blue, 2 red & 2 green) scattered throughout the millefiori canes, which are predominantly in shades of blue with just a hint of other colours, such as mauve and pale-orange. The outer row of multi-coloured canes is pulled to the centre of the base to form a basket. A B2000 signature/date cane is...

  • From the 1999 Collection “Gardens of the World” - a series which included lampwork and millefiori and was inspired by the diaries of a plant enthusiast - this is “Chatou”, the Island of the Impressionists. The large lampwork weight in 2 layers, has a delightful “naive” look to it rather than an impressionist effect.Acid-etched on the flat, polished base...

  • A great assortment of typical Baccarat millefiori canes - in colours covering virtually the whole spectrum from pastel shades to dark blues, strong reds and violet - in this magnum closepack incorporating the 12 signs of the Zodiac - No. 2 in the series. Neatly finished, as always, with the outer row of multi-coloured canes drawn in underneath the...

  • A stunning one-off design similar to the Helios and Ouranos patterned millefiori editions issued in 1996. Complex millefiori canes in shades of amber/white/pink are set in a radiating spoke pattern over a translucent rose ground underlaid with opaque white. The panels are filled with blue/green, green/ochre & cobalt-blue/white canes.A B1996...

  • A beautiful magnum weight featuring a 3-dimensional shaded-pink & white rose floating above an opaque pale-blue ground framed by a 3-row garland of complex millefiori canes in subtle, pastel shades - aqua, pale green, blue & mauve. Incorporated in the outer row is a B1995 signature/date cane.Acid-etched insignia, year and edition number on the...

  • The 1994 limited editions were all floral designs - and included this large magnolia blossom. The outer pink-striped white petals are fully open, the others are tightly clustered around the pink/white stamen. Completing the design - over an opaque blue ground underlaid with milky white - are a bud, stalks and pale & dark-green leaves.A tiny B1994...

  • A most unusual - but highly effective - design. Set in the centre of a deep-purple ground (appears black!) is a large white tube lined in sapphire-blue. Around it are numerous similar tubes of various sizes, arranged in spaced rings or interlocking arcs - depending on how you look at it. The effect of light shining through the tubes creates a mesmerizing...

  • A decorative motif with millefiori canes arranged to resemble a rose window. The centre canes - in shades of red, yellow, pistachio, white & blue - are relatively simple whereas more complex canes - in blue, grey, green , pink & orange - form the 4 outer rows. The canes in the spaced perimeter garland are miniature versions of the centre cane plus...

  • Set against a textured, white ground is a spray of lilac & white spring flowers with dark-green lanceolate leaves. The flowers are only half open...as if waiting for the first warming rays of the sun. A tiny, hardly legible B1993 signature/date cane is set at the edge of the white ground. The flat, polished base is signed with the acid-etched...

  • After the success of its first “Exotic Butterfly” series, Baccarat issued a second one 15 years later in a limited edition of 150. A black-bodied insect with lattice wings outlined in white and filled with delicate shades of pale-lilac and lemon, accentuated by deep-pink, is in flight over an opaque dark-green ground covered with thousands of...

  • A mid-size 5-row concentric with typical Baccarat millefiori canes - in shades of pale & dark-green, red, blue & white - arranged over a translucent cobalt-blue ground.Set in the outer row is a B1993 signature/date cane. The flat, polished base bears the Baccarat insignia but neither a year nor edition number. (Perhaps this was a trial design -...

  • A large weight with 18 complex millefiori canes - including a B1992 signature/date cane - encircling a colourful centre cane...spaced over a bed of white upset muslin. 2 canes contain silhouettes: a fleur-de-lys and an unusual green 3-leaf clover. An amazing range of colours - from soft-hued lavender, blue and yellow - via peach, mauve, amber and green...
