This is a large and beautiful vintage Whitefriars Paperweight, dated 1976, a pale Bed of Flowers.
The size is approx. 3" diameter x 1.75" tall to lip of the Concave Cut Top...there are 5 cut circular "portholes" on the sides. The Flower Garden is segmented into 5 sections by a central "Starfish Pattern" of white strands. The Flower Garden is in shades of Pale Pink , Lavender and Yellow, all atop a Base of Black...one cane in the Flower Bed has the date of 1976 and the Whitefriars' Hallmark. The weight is in excellent condition, with a few very petite "mouse nibbles" at the rim of the Concave top, that might have happened during the polishing process, but are hardly discernible. (I can always send a photo of a closeup)
