These unknown antique paperweights have been variously attributed to "Unknown French Factory", however, some research indicates that this one is most probably Clichy although is most Clichy checkers the canes rest on, not above, the lace. Three rings of classic millefiori canes are set around a center cane in this Chequer-like paperweight. The canes float ABOVE a White lace ground with short lengths of several different types of latticinio twists set in a pattern somewhat similar to typical Clichy Checker grounds.The paperweight is 3-5/16 in diameter and has a nice high dome at 2-1/16 high. There is light wear to the surface including a couple tiny pits, and one small bruise to the lower side below the millefiori layer. There is also appropriate wear to the base rim confirming the age. Over all condition is excellent. The item "Antique Open Concentric Millefiori Canes ABOVE Checker Ground, Probably Clichy" is in sale since Friday, December 13, 2019.
