Please help ID purported St. Louis bouquet
« on: January 22, 2019, 01:51:39 AM »
Just today I purchased this paperweight in an auction on eBay. It was listed as 19th-century St. Louis (although the seller hedged and warned to "use your own knowledge...."). I bid on it assuming that it was an imitation or counterfeit, but still felt like I got a good deal on it for what (I assume) it is. I'm hoping that someone will be able to give me some sort of idea of exactly what I've purchased. Appreciate any insights you may have.

Thanks a lot! I thought the price was too good to be true.
