Extremely rare antique Saint Louis pink rose and buds miniature paperweight. A rose, with tiers of shaded pink petals, blooms on a short stem with four crenulated green leaves. Two delightful buds, with thin translucent green sepals, along with three green leaves, peer from behind the bloom. Clear, star-cut ground. “The St. Louis rose illustrated, is one of a handful of these flowers known from this maker. All of the examples of this style of rose are similar in color and set in clear glass.” —The Dictionary of Glass Paperweights. Diameter 2”.
