Back deta il o f Lot 1 1. Extremely rare, important antique Clichy moss ground paperweight, with a large central pink and green Clichy rose, in a moss ground, with a full signature cane. A wide assortment of colorful traditional Clichy complex and pastry-mold canes are arranged in an open concentric pattern around the central rose cane. The moss canes are evenly and masterfully distrib­ uted throughout, including a perfectly symmetrical ring of canes on the perimeter of the ground. The word CLICHY is spelled out in a signature cane composed of six individual rods in turquoise-on-white letters, surrounding a cobalt blue and white floret, closed with a pink bull’s-eye cane. The unique sig­ nature rests on the underside of the ground, behind the rose, surrounded by the moss canes. “[This] example... is quite exceptional and of beautiful make. The proof that the work­ man who built it realized the value of this work shown by the ‘CLICHY’ written in full in the middle of the back side of the ornament. The ground of green moss dotted with stars and flo­ rets recalls the most charming of French Touraine tapestries of the XVIth century. It does not seem possible to achieve a high­ er expression of art on the road of paperweight making; one can well understand that a factory capable of producing pieces of such quality should have been given countless praise and

endless admiration.” Les Presse-Papiers Francais d e Cristal, R. Imbert et Y. Amic, 1948, p.86. See also Paperweights: “Flowers w hich clothe the m eadow s”, plate 93, pp. 32, 136.

More orchid buds hide in the wings below, awaiting their opportunity to star in the show. Curling tendrils descend into the tight suspension provided by the cloister of three emerald-colored sides. “During his career, Stankard has explored the limits of glass as an artistic medium. His extensive background in glass technology and his curiosity and drive as an artist have led him to create some of the finest and most original work being done in glass today. His works are represented in major private and public museum collections in the U.S., Europe and Japan.”—All About P aperweights, p. 96. Signed/dated 1988. Height 6 1/8". $9,000-15,000

Three emerald green sides enshrine the floral sculpture, leading the viewer into a single, glorious perspective. “Legendary artist Paul Stankard inspired a whole generation of glassworkers when he began to draw inspiration for his work directly from nature. By conveying a love of wildflowers in his work, Stankard strikes a chord in all of us. This pioneer of the contemporary glass movement is renowned for the fascinating personal mythology included in his paperweights. Stankard records the anatomy of plants with uncanny accuracy.” — Lawrence Selman. Signed/dated 1994. Height 5 7/8". $9,000-13,000

Paul Jokelson Scholarship Fund “So important was Paul Jokelson’s influence on the world of glass paperweights, many people wonder if the nineteenth-century art form would have ever been revived with­ out him.” In view of Pauls monumental contribution, his family and the International Paperweight Society Foundation have set up a scholarship fund in Jokelson’s memory to continue his lifelong legacy of promoting the art of the paperweight. Grants will be provided to emerging or established glass artists wishing to learn or further develop the art. 100% of the proceeds of lots 310-316 will go toward the Paul Jokelson Scholarship Fund. To learn more about the fund, please visit the Paul Jokelson Scholarship Fund link on the website: www.TheGlassGallery.com.
