Four trademark Clichy rose canes are included in the design: one white and green, one white and pink, and two pink and green. All told a wonderful piece that is from my personal collection.
Size: 2 7/8" Diameter.
Condition: Very Good to Excellent. There is glare from the flash. Not defects.
Provenance: Fall 2005 L. H. Selman Price Guide and Auction. This was Lot 28, pictured on Page 9. At that time the estimate was$1800 - $2500 before Buyers Premium of ten percent. We list this excellent piece for only a bit more than the high estimate when we bought it eight years ago. I have confidence in antique paperweights going up in value, as investors worry about the USDollar and the low interest rates for savings. My personal philosophy has been two-fold - first, buy what you love and enjoy, so it will bring happiness into your life and second - buy the highest quality that you can afford. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years of collecting, and I am quite proud of the quality of my collections. Hopefully whoever buys my treasures will enjoy them as much or more than I have.
