Art Glass Murano Paperweight millefiori

I purchased a collection of art glass paperweights and I will be offering them here as I go through the collection

each one is handmade and has such detail and beauty and is reminiscent of an era gone by when folks used to write letters

it is hard for an amateur cameraman to take adequate pictures :(

A paperweight is a small solid object heavy enough, when placed on top of papers, to keep them from blowing away in a breeze or from moving under the strokes of a painting brush (as with Chinese calligraphy). While any object, such as a stone, can serve as a paperweight, decorative paperweights of glass are produced, either by individual artisans or factories, usually in limited editions, and are collected as works of fine glass art, some of which are exhibited in museums First produced in about 1845, particularly in France, such decorative paperweights declined in popularity before undergoing a revival in the mid-twentieth century.
