This is a very rare Bacchus paperweight which is magnum sized as is usual. This paperweight contains some nice complex canes, has canes already identified as Bacchus and has been confirmed to me as such by a world known expert / dealer in top end paperweights. Although the faceting may not be original, this style of faceting has been seen on several Bacchus paperweights before. It has a top facet, a first row of 6 facets and a lower row of 9 facets. All facets are deeply dished and exactly 1 in diameter.This paperweight shows honest unrestored condition. What I mean by that is, that it has a well defined wear ring to the base (around a concave centre), and several minor chips / scratches around the facets. The largest is to one of the lower side facets at around 1/4 diameter.
There is another, a little smaller, to one of the upper side facets. The rest are mostly to the facet edges and are around 1/8 in size. In total there are 4 larger chips and around 20 smaller ones. Please see the photos for details.This is a large paperweight 3 1/4" diameter x 2 1/4" tall and weighing 1lb 9 3/4 oz. This is a large paperweight 83mm diameter x 54mm tall and weighing 731g.
