The G12A is a medium sized weight, nominally 2-1/2" diameter with about 32 canes, and the G12B is a large weight, nominally 2-3/4" diameter with about 38-40 canes. All three originally were made only on mottled pink grounds, however we asked Peter to make some on other color grounds and this one is on Dar Blue. This is the BIG one, a G12B. Peter McDougall, former Perthshire Factory Manager, continued with his innovative designs. This large 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.
I found one complex cane that had more than 35 individual canes as elements--individual CANES, NOT individual RODS. Several others have more than 20 individual cane elements that form the large complex cane. NOBODY ELSE is doing this level of millefiori cane work.There are over 40 individual canes that are set on a dark Blue cushion. The weight is 2-3/4" in diameter and 1-7/8" high. It is with Peter's "PMcD" in four canes in the design and also has his "PMcD Glass Studio" sticker on the bottom.
