Young Queen Victorian head paperweight cane ? thought's.
« on: December 12, 2017, 02:46:16 PM »
Any thought's on this one would be welcome i'm guessing an early paperweight maybe? and in fantastic condition apart from the base wear, it measures 3 1/4 inches across the base and the underside looks like a car tyre with an internal depression.

I'm guesing the cane maybe young Victoria.

Regards Chris.

Hi

There are several different designs of 'Queen Victoria' head silhouette used in Old English paperweights, by various makers both known and unknown.  ( I wrote a long article in the 2009 PCA Bulletin about these head canes).  The cane in this weight is an example of the 'square bun' design, which is the neatest and most detailed version.  I don't think anyone knows for sure who made it - but you can rule out Bacchus, as they used a different, poorer quality head cane.  The cog canes in the weight shown above have distinctive thick white walls, but I have seen examples rather like these in Richardson, Walsh Walsh and unknown maker pieces...so I am afraid that does not help much.
