Hi.  It is a very unusual design for a Bacchus, the canes are very high quality and look like some Bacchus canes.  So although it is not 'classic Bacchus', I could believe it was from that maker.

My first "guess" would identify this as New England Glass Company from Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA).  However, the seller is an internationally known expert on paperweights and I trust his judgement.

never seen and "end of the day" or scrambled  of  Bacchus but I agree with Allan idea as quality is super and could be a Bacchus as the clarity of white and pink canes is a typical  Bacchus atmosphere
