THIS PAPERWEIGHT QUITE POSSIBLY INCLUDES SOME OF THE MOST COMPLEX CLASSIC MILLEFIORI CANES EVER MADE. Peter McDougall, former Perthshire Factory Manager, continued with his innovative designs. This medium-sized close pack paperweight from Peter's PMcD Studio in Crieff Scotland includes complex and detailed millefiori canes that rival--or SURPASS-- the most complex canes found in even the best antique weights such as Baccarat, Clichy, and St. Peter makes this design in three sizesthe G12 is a small weight approximately 2 to 2-1/4" in diameter, the G12A is a medium sized paperweight nominally 2-1/2" in diameter, and the G12B is a large weight approximately 3 in diameter. As the size increases more and more complex canes are included.
This one is the medium sized G12A weight. I found one complex cane that had more than 35 individual canes as elements--individual CANES, NOT individual RODS.. NOBODY ELSE is doing this level of millefiori cane work.
The individual canes are set on a translucent dark Blue ground. The weight is 2-9/16" in diameter and 1-3/4" high. It is signed "PMcD" in four separate canes in the set-up.The item "Peter McDougall G12A Close Pack withIncredibly Complex Canes" is in sale since Saturday, September 24, 2016.
