For sale a gorgeous Large Antique St Louis Circa 1850 Panelled Jasper glass paperweight. In excellent condition for age, almost flawless dome. There are tiny light surface scratches and a couple of small nicks to the glass dome, but impossible to photograph.
This is in museum piece condition for a weight of this age (approx 169 years old) from the famous French St Louis glassware. Eight panels on on coral and blue jasper ground and Millefiori sea shell canes with blue and white torsade around the weight. As beautiful and classic as they come and still as vibrant and intriguing as the day it was made.
A heavy and large weight measures - approx 3.3 in diameter by 2 tall. Solid and heavy vintage glass. Owned in the family for 10 years.This weight has added provenance and appeared on the UK Antiques Roadshow in November 2010 Series 33, Hatfield House 1. I cannot find an entire episode available to watch but here is a link to the episode guide. A really cherished weight, but it is time to let it go so someone else can enjoy the beauty and be mesmerised by the treasures and secrets within. Will be wrapped and boxed securely. Feel free to ask any questions.
