Large Strathearn Eight Pointed Star Paneled Millefiori Paperweight. Large Strathearn Eight Pointed Star Paneled Millefiori Paperweight with Opaque Orange Ground. This paperweight is finished as a eight pointed star. The star points give the glass a glittery appearance. It features a paneled millefiori design with seven panels of 1+1+2 millefiori patterns each separated by a white latticinio twist cane.
There is a central ring of six millefiori canes and then a center millefiori cane. The canes are early Scottish millefiori canes on an opaque orange ground. A great addition to any collection of Scottish glass. This is called a pressed weight because a mold is used to form the shape.
