Part I: Antique Paperweights & Related Objects “The lure o f the paperweight intensifies upon being handheld. Through its lens-like dome, its design is enhanced, revealing details intuitive to the practiced eye. The collector and student o f glass become tuned to subtle variations in color, form, pattern and glass clarity— just as the scholar perceives nuances in poetry, literature, art and music.” — Geraldine J. Casper

Diameter 3 3/16". $10,000-15,000 “Although it is not entirely certain when Clichy began, with some theories placing it at 1837 or 1838, it is certain that by 1870 the factory’s reputation had declined and paperweight pro­ duction ceased in 1885 when the company was purchased by Sevres. In its short history there is a progressive panoply of per­ fection in its rose canes. ...If Clichy were not the originator of the rose cane concept, it certainly developed it far beyond the millefiori designs of its counterparts.” —Annual Bulletin o f the Paperweight Collectors Association (1999).

Diameter 3". $4750-6000 “As both factories, St. Louis as well as Baccarat, are situated in an area where neither lampworking or cane drawing was truly rooted, they may have met the same problems, i.e. having at their dispo­

sition only a small number of glassblowers who were able to do exceptional millefiori and lampworking. This may have been the major reason for producing their finest weights only during a short period-to continue this production line only on a smaller scale and with quite common patterns.” — Paperweights.

It has been suggested that this could have been Bacchus. That there was a strong French influence on Bacchus, there can be no doubt.” — Annual Bulletin o f the Paperweight Collectors Association (1980).

Antique Clichy open concentric millefiori soddensnow paperweight, with complex canes in red, green, pink, blue, turquoise and white on a white opaque ground. Provenance: Collection of Frances Fairchild. Diameter 3". $2500-3500 “The clusters of canes are sunk in what at first glance appears to be a solid color ground of a peculiar opaque but fuzzy white — like dense fog, or as someone aptly called it ‘sodden snow.’” —

The Encyclopedia o f Glass Paperweights. “Clichy had been founded only in 1839. During the brilliant but limited period of its independent existence, it excelled repeatedly in taking up glass technological challenges, even those which were beyond strict commercial needs. ...(T )he glass technological achievements characterize the Clichy glass­

works and its owners, who had tried to pioneer as Bontemps had done, as capable of combining reserach and production, a daring task of one without the secure commercial background which a big factory offered. This general attitude of Clichy leads me to the assumption that they might have been the first ones to offer convincing paperweights.” — Paperweights.

“The classic period of paperweight manufacture is generally considered to have extended from 1840 to 1860. The idea of paperweights as a saleable art form is thought to have been introduced in 1845 at the Austrian Industrial Fair in Vienna, where Pietro Bigaglia of Venice, one of a long line of Muranese glassworkers, displayed his wares. Although some weights may have been manufactured previously in France, it is believed Bigaglias weights may have stimulated the development of sophisticated paperweight manufacture in France.”

“Among the most sought-after paperweights from these facto­ ries are pieces containing red, white and blue single flowers and floral bouquets with poinsettias, clematis blossoms and pansytype bloom known as the weedflower. Like the United States’ flag, these brilliant stylized blooms were created to symbolize the ideals America was built on.” — The New England Antiques Journal (July 1994).

“In the greatest period in the history of glassworks (in the first half of the 19th century), there were more than 60 glassworks in the area of Bohemia and Silesia. ...The development of glass­ making in the area of Riesengebirge and Isengebirge was accompanied by a strengthening of dynasties of the glassworks owners. The most famous dynasty in Bohemia was the family of Riedels. In the Silesian part of Riesengebirge it was the fam­ ily of Preusslers who had the greatest glassmaking traditions. The members of this family had set up glassworks since the beginning of the 17th century.”— Glass Paperweights: The

“In 1984 Stankard made an attempt to isolate the botanical imagery with his crystal blocks and thus individualize the aesthetic experience desired for the viewer. He enclosed all sur­ faces of a botanical block with mirrored sides, except the front and top were the only open areas. Stankard calls the work a Cloistered Botanical because a cloister is a quiet secluded place.”

Diameter 3". $800-1200 “Many of Ysart’s paperweights, especially the early ones, con­ tain no signature cane whatsoever. For these, stylistic criteria and millefiori cane designs must be used for attribution. For those pieces containing a signature cane, two different canes were used. The first was an ‘H’ cane representing the place of manufacture, Harland. This cane was used in his standard pro­ duction paperweights from 1971 to 1979. The second signa­ ture cane used was the well-known and at times illegitimately copied ‘PY’ cane. After 1955, the ‘PY’ cane was reserved for the limited edition paperweights sold in the United States by Paul Jokelson. ...Ysart originally made his signature cane by bundling together thin upright rods of differently colored glass­ es to form the design.” — The D ictionary o f Paperweight
