They were made using a combination of millefiori cane and thermometer cane with white or yellow enamel backing - this example uses the white version, set in heavy lead crystal. The canes incluse a signature / date cane for 1972, which is unusual in that the stylised monk is surrounded by pale yellow glass, rather than clear. Overall condition for a piece that is nearly 50 years old is very good: there are a few near invisible'shelf wear' scratches; some minuscule flakes off the edge that are easier felt than seen; and a small mark or surface flaw next to the signature/ date cane.Size: 65 mm x 50 mm x 19 mm / 2 1/2 inch x 2 inch x 3/4 inch. Condition : very good; a few very minor marks as noted above. Please remember this is not a brand new item - you may be able to find minuscule marks elsewhere if you search using a magnifying glass.
