There is one central cane which is surrounded by eight tightly packed petal shaped canes and two rings of elaborate millefiori canes on a lovely cobalt blue ground. The cane colors were carefully chosen to contrast beautifully with the translucent color base. There is one perfect top facet which is sized to totally magnify the pattern within. There is the Perthshire 1978 date cane on the base. Condition of this weight is excellent.
The edition size of this paperweight was 350, but only 292 were actually made. Since the base colors vary, identical versions of this paperweight are even more limited.
There were at least three ground colors, cobalt blue, green, and red. The cobalt is most striking in its contrast with its canes and design. The item "1978A Perthshire Complex Millefiori Canes Floral Paperweight Limited Edition EC" is in sale since Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
