St Mande?
« on: August 05, 2013, 10:44:14 AM »
Hi All. Please can anyone help with the ID on this paperweight. It was listed as a St Mande? so the vendor was not clear too. The glass has a green tinge to it and there is a ridge where the dome was added at the same level as the circle of longer green millefiori around the edge. It is quite large - 82mm or 3 1/4"....
Thanks, Don

Hi Don.  I would agree with St Mandé, looking at the design and canes.  The coloured tinge to the glass and noticeable manufacturing ridge are typical of their paperweights too.  Large ones like this are much less common than the mini sized ones.
