Bohemian or what else?
« on: May 08, 2011, 04:59:32 AM »
I've had this miniature for almost 10 years, but have never been able to pin a firm attribution on it.  I've called it Bohemian, but have no others with the same canes.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Allan

I'm fairly certain that it is French: a St Mandé paperweight. The canes and design look right for them.
