This is a really stunning Baccarrat paperweight with blue, green and white colour scheme. A large central Gridel white monkey silhouette cane is surrounded by alternating panels of blue and green millefiori, divided by six spokes, which contain the other seventeen Gridel silhouette canes and a signature/date cane, on opaque milk white ground. There are numerous canes including a butterfly, dancing devil (in red, of course!), swan, pelican, fox, grouse, squirrel, elephant, flamingo, bird, cat. There are 18 Gridel Canes in total including the central monkey, plus the date cane. The coloured canes are beautifully spaced and set. It is acid etched on the base with ` Baccarat France number 214 , 1976'. It has full glass on top, and has never been polished.
Very Good to Excellent Condition.
Quite large and heavy; 3 and 1/4 inches diameter. This really is a great addition to a collection or a wonderful gift for anyone who appreciates beautiful things.
