This RARE paperweight has THREE different Rose canes including a RARE PURPLE and WHITE Rose, PLUS a FOURTH Rose, a Rare HIDDEN Rose.

This classic antique Clichy (French, circa 1850) paperweight features an "Open Concentric" design with three rings of millefiori canes surrounding a center PINK/GREEN ROSE. Unlike MOST Clichy "Concentric" millefiori weights (where the canes are actually arranged in rows and only "appear" to be concentric), this paperweight is a TRUE CONCENTRIC.
Set around the large center PINK/GREEN rose, the inner ring has eight canes including a GREEN/WHITE Rose cane, the second ring has twelve canes including a HIDDEN ROSE (the center of the large Pink/Green cane), and the outer ring has sixteen canes including a RARE PURPLE and WHITE Rose for a total of 37 canes.
