Chinese Clichy on eBay
« on: August 31, 2012, 01:51:22 PM »
I've written to the seller of this paperweight and informed him that it is Chinese, but he has insisted that it is a genuine Clichy.  He states "I have done a fair amount of research on this weight before coming to my conclusion. I have a collection five 1930s Chinese millefiori paperweights which I've bought over the last ten years."

So, maybe the experts can offer their opinions.

Even I can tell it's not Clichy!
Notaclu what it is though, beyond nothing very special. ;D

Looks Chinese to me, too, Allan. I don't recall seeing a facetted one like this, but those are very Chinese canes.

Thanks Alan. 

I have a faceted example in my collection.  Faceting makes them look a lot better.  I've heard that some glass cutters practice on Chinese weights.

I have now told the seller it is Chinese, as well.
