Thanks for those, Frank.

I would like to say that if anyone does make use of those images, please remember that monochrome images of millefiori canes are not easy to draw assessements from or to make comparisons with. Many canes from many makers can easily look very similar, or even identical, when seen only in black and white.

I had a good example of this when I bought from eBay a glass slide with a b&w negative of a closepack weight that, at first sight, seemed to be a possible Paul Ysart piece. Even when I produced a positive image by photographing the slide and converting my photo, many of the canes still looked like Ysart ones. Later, I realised there was a lone "B" cane amongst them - and the item eventually turned out to be not an Ysart closepack paperweight, but a wafer stand made by Baccarat in the mid 19th century. GMB member "tropdevin" recently did a write up in the newsletter of the Paperweight Collectors Circle, showing another example of the lone Baccarat "B" cane [something very, very, rare] in glorious colour. But I digress somewhat, and really ought to apologise to those who knew about my glass slide example and were hoping for an article of some sort from me a couple of years ago. So ... sorry, folks. But Alan's colour image of the cane is much better than anything I could ever have done with the glass slide version!

If felt useful, I could add a free download on the Glass Study Association facility of this in high resolution.... and of course as a single image.
