Outstanding and extremely rare antique Clichy three flower bouquet paperweight. by Antique Clichy
Outstanding and extremely rare antique Clichy three flower bouquet paperweight. A stunning trio of clematis blooms, double-tiered and each punctuated at its nexus by a unique complex cane, is achieved with gathered leafy stems tied by a delicate pink ribbon. One flower is shaded-pink, another is white with blue-striped petals and the third is made of the striking Clichy purple color. Each flower is accompanied by a corresponding companion bud with a few green sepals. Clear ground. “Any flat bouquet from Clichy would be considered rare, for while the variety of designs is good, the actual number of these weights made was small.” —The Dictionary of Glass Paperweights. Pictured as figure 37(a) at the bottom right inside cover of Antique Glass Paperweights from France. Diameter 2 15/16”.
