Antique Saint Louis dimensional pear sculpture paperweight. A matte-finish blushing yellow pear has a mottled green and blue calyx pressed into deep grooves at one end and a short yellow stem at the other. It sits on a clear square base with concave rounded edges and smooth corners. In contrast to its hollow blown American antique counterpart that usually sits on a clear cookie base, this pear is made of solid glass. See the Saint Louis exhibition catalog, De la flame a l’âme, display 42, for two fruit sculptures with similar square bases. Good condition. Width 3 7/8”, height 3 1/8”
