i picked this little Millefiori paperweight up a couple of weekends back.
It is made from a clear glass done with a central white ground Millefiori edge in green white and yellow. The central white ground has a large flower with a C in the middle of the flower head (possible part of the design maybe a maker/designer??)
The only thing ive managed to find similar is on page 10 of the millers Paperweights of the 19th & 20th centuries a collectors guide which says the picture is "transfer prints". The weight in the book is by Ferro & Lazzerini. Although mine is nowhere near the same quality picture as the one in the book the millefiori looks very similar
The weight is made from reasonable quality glass, the millefiori canes a very coggy and chunky. The base is flat smooth and very well polished. I dont think it has any real age to it maybe somewhere in the last 20 years max
anybody confirm or think its something completly different? it only cost me £1 so it wont break the bank if its chinese :24:
