This is a first quality Perthshire millefiori paperweight, in perfect condition. This medium sized paperweight can be identified as PP100. It has a centre cane and five triangular cane groups with 1-2-3 canes each outlined by twists. There are two outer cane rings.It has a translucent colour ground base in rich red. It displays a particularly beautiful and subtle colour palette across a range of shades of red and green. The colour scheme of this weight is truly beautiful, as can be seen from the photographs. It has a flat round top so that the stunning beauty of the cane composition can be seen. It is a Limited Edition and signed with a tiny P1988 cane in the base. It measures 6 cm (or about 2.5) across the base and is about 5cms (2) in height. It weighs 311gms before packing. The paperweight is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or polishing. Those who are fortunate enough to have a copy of The Complete Guide to Perthshire Paperweights by Mahoney and McClanahan pub. 1997 will find this weight on page 118. Postal charges are based on the weight of the paperweight fully packed. I always, as a matter of policy, use a signed for and tracked postal option and insure for the full value.
These fine glass pieces require good packaging and plenty of it. I pack most carefully in tough new packaging for which I make no charge. Please note that I have successfully sent fragile items all over the world for many years.
I have also learned that with fragile items, it is safer and more prudent to pack in a comparatively large box.
