This antique paperweight was made by St. Louis during the classic period (1845 to 1860) of French paperweights. The central motif features a well-constructed concentric mushroom. This concentric mushroom features a complex central cane with three rows of complex canes. The outer row consists of rarely seen St. Louis rose canes. The weight has a top circular facet and three additional rows of circular facets. There is a small and larger chip to the base. The larger chip is not deep, probably 3/32 of an inch square and extends from the base to the lower portion of a circular facet. Overall, this magnificent paperweight is in excellent condition.
