Mod: This thread has been created by splitting out details from another thread. The title and some of the wording here has been edited to suit.

Hello, I have this weight which is a concentric type with polish clear pontil possibly Clichy? Any information would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance
Steve

This is not from one of the major factories - it might be Belgian or French.

 Hi Steven.  Not impossible for it to be St M, but I had not suggested it as I do not recognise the cane style as their work.  The glass of St M is usually fairly grey, and the paperweight tend to be noticeably curved under towards the base, often with a shallow circumferential groove from manufacture about 1/3 way up from the base.

Don French collects St M and Grenelle, and has posted a lot of images on his website: https://sites.google.com/site/antiquepaperweights/saint-mande-paperweights

Thank you Alan

The base does have a noticeable Curve to the base which is why i first thought Clichy and Secondly St M. the photo provided make the base look flat (my apologies) , But the Glass looks to be the Same in colour to most Clichy and Baccarat that i have had before and i would not say any more "grey"

thank you for the Link i must admit the red and Blue canes look similar to some St M. but i would Say mine is probably Neater
Kind regards Steven

Hi Steve,

some of the canes remind of New England Glass Company,
so an American source around 1850 should not be ruled out
completely; they made a number of different grounds, pls see
the attached picture- very similar to late Bohemian/Silesian
but with a confirmed ID to the NEGC works (canes matched,
heavy lead crystal, deep hollow  pontil area).

best wishes, ejm
EJM
