In England, two companies are known to have produced paperweights in the 19th Century: George Bacchus & Son and the Islington Glassworks, both in Birmingham. But some fine English paperweights cannot be attributed to either company, so other glasshouses must also have been producing millefiori canes. Unfortunately, it has not proved possible to identify them conclusively and, currently, they are grouped under the heading “Old English” - which covers late 19th Century paperweights right up to the 1920/30s.
