While Bill changed his signature cane each year, he used the Burchfield-27 cane and others in 1997. Crown weights are considered by some to be the most exciting of all millefiori designs.
They are extremely difficult to make. 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 Cape Cod Glass Works was operated by William Clark Burchfield in Sagamore, Massachusetts from 1976 to 2000. It then continued briefly in Crossville, Tennessee until 2001. Bill Burchfield died in 2012.
Bill's son Mark was also at the glass works until 1998. Bill started making paperweights at Pairpoint Glass in 1970.Size: Just over 2 3/8" diameter by 1 15/16" high. The base is ground concave. No cracks, chips, or scratches found on inspection. Signature: This paperweight is signed on top with a variation of the Burchfield-27 signature cane. The signature cane is not as clear as one could wish, but I guarantee this paperweight was made by Bill Burchfield at the Cape Cod Glass Works.
