Beautiful vintage hand blown glass paperweight, with a "millefleurs" or "millifiori"  {thousands of flowers} pattern blown inside the glass.  In glassmaking terms, millefiori means glass decorated with narrow slices of colored glass rods with internal patterns, called cane. These cross-sections of cane are fused into a mosaic design, and encased in a glass dome to form a paperweight.

This paperweight, most likely made in Murano, has wonderful Italian colors of aqua, blue, red, white and sunny yellow, with petit flowers. The pattern reminds me of sea anemones on the ocean floor, it's a luxury addition to your collection. A stunning decorative piece, to hold all your important love notes together on your French desk.  Or simply display as an accent in your home, as a piece of art. Measures 2~5/8" x 2"h.
