Antique New England Glass Company (NEGC) Millefiori Scramble Paperweight with Rabbits. This is an antique New England Glass Company (NEGC) scramble or end of day paperweight. It is filled with a wonderful assortment of colorful millefiori canes, twists, and other glass bits. There are at least two different running rabbit canes, one visible from the top and the other visible from the bottom. I believe this paperweight has been restored.
You will enjoy studying the variety of millefiori canes in it visible from both the top and the base. The catalog says there are two rabbit canes visible from the underside, but I could only find one.Although many people collect scramble paperweights for their own merit, scrambles are also valuable tools for learning to identify the different colors and canes used by each factory. Please Note: The stand shown in the pictures is not included with the paperweight.
It is shown for illustration only. Note on white glare : Please ignore the white areas, they are glare from the light. The New England Glass Company (NEGC) operated in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 1818 to 1888. You can read about paperweights from the New England Glass Company in the book by John Hawley.
