19th century French Paperweight ID please?
« on: March 22, 2018, 09:16:54 PM »
Mod: This thread originally had two weights for ID but each is now in its own thread.  The title and some of the wording here has been edited to suit.

Hello i have this French Weights which is a Nosegay type with star cut pontil possibly St Louis? Any information would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance
Steve

I believe the lampwork flower is an Anemone and the weight was made by Baccarat, mid 19th century.

As Kev says, this is an antique Baccarat anemone.
