On offer here is a small low-domed antique English paperweight made in the Bacchus glassworks ca. Is a good example of the work - and of the canes - of this highly sought-after glass company which produced only an extremely limited number of paperweights. Encircling the 8-lobed, pink/white flowerhead are small green/white cogs followed by 9 larger canes 3 of which are set in opaque white collars.The basket consists of mainly blue-lined white staves interspersed with translucent blue & aquamarine staves. The corrugated staves meet at a porthole in the base. The base has a polished concavity and wide wear ring. Obviously this weight has been polished and there is now little glass over the top of the canes (see side views), but the weight is in Top condition (no chips, scratches, scuffs or fleabites) Measurements: D: 68mm (2 5/8"); H: 42mm (1 5/8").
