ID for a Millefiori Paperweight.

(1/2) > >>

Hi all my wonderful knowledgeable friends on Glass Messages

I picked this nice paperweight up in a charity shop for a couple of pounds and before I add anything to my glass collection I always try and research the item so I know its pedigree.

This is a good looking red, white and blue Millefiori paperweight. Measuring approx 8cms diameter and has a polished concave base with no identification marks or stickers.

Could this possibly be a John Deacons or a Murano maker? I would appreciate any pointers in identifying this lovely paperweight.

I have checked every image on and extensively on the net but not found a near match. I have another two paperweights I wish to find out designer maker date which I have added as separate topics.

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

With best regards

I don't know that much about paperweights but I don't think it's Murano and that it's too old for john Deacons. The glass looks quite grey. Perhaps one of the "old English" makers

Thank you Christine - I will keep looking and hope I find a maker and date.
BTW i love all your gallery etc; a great source for research.
Thanks again
With best regards

Hi Everyone on Glass Message board

Could this be a H G Richardson Millefiori Paperweight. I'm still searching. Any pointers would be super.
Thanks in advance

Only my personal opinion but it looks like Whitefriars late 60's or very early 70's to me - just before they started using signature canes
