This paperweight quite possibly includes some of the most complex classic millefiori canes ever made. It is made in three sizes. The G12 is a small weight, nominally 2-1/8 diameter with about 24 canes. 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 Black. THIS IS EVEN BIGGER, a G12C and has close to 100 canes. 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. There are close to 100 individual canes that are set on a Black cushion. The weight is 3-7/16" in diameter and 2-3/8" high. It is signed with Peter's "PMcD Glass Studio" sticker on the bottom.
