Part I: A ntique Paperweights & R elated O bjects 1. Very rare antique Baccarat dated close packed millefiori magnum paperweight. The magnificent specimen contains a “B 1847” signature/date cane, among a vast array of assorted, finely detailed, complex canes, including shamrocks, arrow­ heads, six-point stars, honeycombs, green leaves, crosses, whorls, trefoils, quatrefoils, cogs, two Gridel pigeon silhou­ ettes, and two Gridel love birds silhouettes. A ring of diamond cutting encircles the perimeter of the base. “This Baccarat staple is one of the most consistently interesting weights ever made, always revealing something new”. —The Encyclopedia o f Glass Paperweights. “Close millefiori refers to the close vertical packing together of the canes, like people in a dense crowd. The patchwork quilt of one hundred or one hundred and fifty canes in a close millefiori paperweight offers a sampling of many or most of the canes made by a factory, and treats the eye to an almost endless variety.” —Glass

Paperweights o f the New York Historical Society. Diameter 3 7/8".

$16,000-24,000

2. Very rare antique Bacchus close packed millefiori paper­ weight. Displaying 140 canes, most of them complex, this piece is an excellent example of Bacchus craftsmanship. Two rarely seen oak leaf canes are included in the design, as well as an assortment of six-point stars, ruffles, crimps, and cogs, in various sizes. Also something of a rarity for a Bacchus weight, the piece contains a broad range of colors, in both dark and pastel shades of blue, red, and green, as well as white. The arrangement rests within a stave basket composed of alternating, pastel-colored crimped rods. Surface wear. “We are always delighted to come across another Bacchus weight, as it is most likely to contain something we have not seen before. Whether impressing us with the size of their canes, large or microscopic, surprising us with a unique design like the paneled carpet ground, or soothing us with an almost white concentric pattern, the large, subtle, elegant weights are a joy to behold.” — Annual Bulletin o f the Paperweight Collectors Association , Inc. (1999). “Many of the canes are apt to be large, compared to their counterparts in other factories, and the whole collection is enclosed in a peripheral ring of canes, usually crimped, that cup under to the center of the base.” —The Encyclopedia o f Glass Paperweights. “Compared to the output of the French glass works of Clichy, Baccarat, and St. Louis, the Bacchus production was very limited, possibly only four hundred or so in total.”

The large body and long tail suggest that an Epagneul Picard served as the model for this cane. This breed, like the Braque Francais... is also a gun dog and originates from Picardy in the north of France.”

117. Monart Glass pale blue, brown, and gold aventurine vase. The tall, trumpet-shaped vase is an example of early Monart, which was in production from 1924 - I960. “The most common type of Monart is a clear (crystal) cased, brightly coloured, mottled flower vase. This type is made with pulverized and sieved coloured enamels worked into the parison on the marver and then reheated and cased with crystal before the final blowing and shaping. ...Paul Ysart blew the last piece of Monart in 1961, the year before the Toledo Glass Workshop and the invention of the small pot furnace which led to a renaissance of art glassblowing and the start of the Studio Glass movement. In the history of twentieth-century glassmaking, Monart therefore spans a yawning gap between the end of the Art Nouveau period and the start of modern Studio Glass, having similarities in techniques and style with both.” —Ysart Glass.

348. Important Saint Louis 1973 super magnum concen­ tric millefiori piedouche paperweight. The largest paper­ weight ever produced, the piece employs six hundred and seven assorted complex canes, including six-point star, cog, and star-shaped canes, in ruby, green, lavender, pink, blue, chartreuse, and white. The arrangement is mounted on a double-spiral white latticinio footed pedestal base, bordered by two white chaplet bead twist torsades. Specially made to honor Paul Jokelson’s accomplishments in the paperweight world, it required seven highly-skilled glassworkers to perform the extraordinary task of welding the pedestal to the large dome. The annealing time for this majestic specimen took a full week, and it was only after four attempts that the first successful piece was produced. This piedouche is the property of Wheaton Arts Museum, W heaton, New Jersey, and was a gift to the museum from Frank H. W heaton, Jr. in 1979. Signature/date cane. Edition #8 of a lim ited edition of 12. Height 9 1/2", diameter 10", circumference 30". Weight 55 lbs. $30,000-60,000
