Miniature Italian Art Glass Millefiori Paperweight - image 1 of 9

I have been told in the past that these millefiori examples with closely aligned cane pieces were known as tight pack paperweights. This example definitely fits that description as two style of canes are tightly packed together to form the center of this otherwise clear paperweight. I do know that miniature weights are a little tougher to find in the marketplace as they are extremely popular with collectors. I believe this example was produced in the latter half of the 20th century as it exhibits a somewhat mid century modern appearance. The piece measures 1 1/4” tall and approximately 1 7/8” diameter. I can find no damages or repairs to this unique item. I will mention that I did notice several free-floating tiny interior bubbles, very common with this type of glass. I also noticed some slight shelf ware roughness around the edge of the base which can be felt but it does not detract from the beauty. A great chance to pick up a beautiful miniature art glass paperweight.
