Super Intricate MILLEFIORI Paperweight Vetreria (glassworks in Italian) 3 Fiori in Murano. Just look over the pics carefully! This will be a standout and draw attention in any collection or catch the eye sitting alone somewhere in your house with that beautiful bright cobalt blue.
Get your loupe out cuz you're going to want to really take a close look inside this beauty. There are 7 canes in a cane. If that isn't intricate enough - you'll find that each of the 7 are so tiny and intricate as well.
Someone at 3 Fiori is/was very very seriously talented! Very hard to get good pics of what I speak of but you can see some of it - what you can't really see are 2 that are so impressive because there are multiple flowers - so they are tiny - so cool! Really an impressive piece of art and for a collector that really loves millefiori - what a treat.Approx 1.75" tall and 2.75" in diameter. I've got around 450 paperweights from my sweet mom's collection that I've inherited.
She did most of her collecting during the 70's and 80's. I've got it all - names you know and unsigned beauties too. Do come back - So many beautiful weights to see!
