Need help with ID millefiori paperweight

Post by speaktothequeen on January 27th 2015, 6:42 pm

Hello

Bought this as part of a lot at auction. It is not signed and I do not know it's age or maker. Ant help would be appreciated.

I will post a picture of the bottom in comments.  



Thank you,

Julie

I don't know too much about paperweights but I think this may be Perthshire.

It could also be Strathearn, the reason I think more Strathearn then Perthshire is the twists and the rough base.

Have a look at Richard More's site for Strathearn paperweights

Perthshire by the look of it and with a 'fire polished base'.

See here for Perthshire's general weights: http://www.scotlandsglass.co.uk/cms/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=186&Itemid=6
