This antique paperweight was made by Baccarat during the classic period (1845 to 1860) of French paperweights. The central motif features a closepacked mushroom. The mushroom is presented within a dark blue and white overlay. The mushroom has been pulled down to a star-cut base. The weight is faceted with a top facet, six large circular facets, and twelve-vertical facets. There is one small white spot on the dark blue overlay, otherwise this weight is in excellent condition.
