Fine 1953 St. Louis Red Double Overlay Paperweight

This is a very fine and interesting double overlay paperweight. It has a St. Louis signed and dated cane from 1953. It also has a couple of interesting star canes. What is really most interesting is that the extremely small and tightly packed canes are set on a mushroom which is typically of these type of St. Louis weights, but it is twisted. That twist which starts at the base of the mushroom, makes everything look as though it is in motion. Can you spot the Star of David cane? The photo really does not do it justice because in person, each window opening to the mushroom contains a different dynamic view which in the photos gets distorted. Excellent condition in all ways. Approx. 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" high.
