Peter McDougall Special Blue/White Barber Pole Checker
BARBERPOLE CHECKER designs have long been one of the highly prized millefiori designs. At our request Peter started making Barber Pole weights and a Blue/White version was incorporated in his 2005 annual collection as design #5. This one is a larger version and has a Blue Lace ground and was made in 2016. Just as in the classic Clichy weights, short lengths of twisted White latticinio cables interwoven with a Blue thread are used to separate complex millefiori canes. And Peter's complex millefiori canes are some of the most complex and intricate ever made by any paperweight maker. The millefiori design rests on a dark Blue lace ground. The paperweight is 3-1/4" in diameter and 2-3/16" high and is signed with a "PMcD2016" set into the outer ring of twists.
