  • Rare magnum antique Baccarat "B 1848" scattered millefiori and Gridel canes paperweight. A central Gridel moth, or butterfly, silhouette cane is surrounded by numerous assorted complex canes including a "blue flax" flower silhouette cane, a love bird cane and the Gridel silhouette canes of a horse, a deer, a dog, a goat, a rooster, a squirrel, a white monkey, a hunter and a pelican, on a cushion of white upset muslin and colored filigree. "B 1848" date cane. A ring of diamond cutting encircles the perimeter of the base. Thin line of dark striae on lower side. "The moth cane most often appears in or near the center of the motif. The separation of the large canes gives them a breathing space they do not have in the close millefiori and makes their colors look as bright as Clichy." - The Encyclopedia of Glass Paperweights. Diameter 3 3/4".
