Originally attributed to 2nd period Clichy (due probably to the fact that, like classic Clichy designs, the canes are arranged on parallel latticinio rods) new findings point to a far more likely Belgian origin for this excellent 19th Century millefiori roundel design. Surrounding a circle of green-sheathed white star canes are 5 further circles of well-m ade complex millefiori canes. Most of these canes - including those at the centre of the circles - contain, or are composed solely, of 6-point star canes. (see cane descriptions in 2 articles dealing with similar weights in the 2016 PCA Bulletin).Encircled by a garland of green/blue millefiori canes and set on parallel latticinio rods.
