1846 Concentric Millefiori St louis paperweight?
« on: May 01, 2018, 07:54:10 PM »
The most interesting feature is the tiny year of 1846 in a murine rod! Latticino cane and much of the usual Murano signs throughout.  Not seen this one yet. Provenance and value estimate appreciated. Thanks viewers. Weighs a pound and 4oz. 3" wide and 2.25" tall.

It is a modern Murano. Estimates of value can be obtained by looking at completes sales on eBay.

Agreed - mid 20th century Murano.  You can find many different dates in these, from 1815 to 1951 at least.
