  • Rare antique Saint Louis white pompon on tomato red latticinio paperweight. A carefully arranged pompon, made of multiple tiers of white flattened hollow tubes, is crowned by two serrated green leaves and a tightly closed bud and blooms on a gently curved green stem along with two additional opposing leaves. The flower floats elegantly over a striking tomato red double-swirl latticinio cushion. "The tomato coloring of the ground is achieved with a translucent coating of red glass above and beneath the opaque white latticinio, rather than a color coating of the individual latticinio strands." -Glass Paperweights of the New-York Historical Society. For a similar example, see the same publication on page 59. Extremely fine condition. Diameter 3".
