Antique Baccarat Engraved Glass Paperweight
Terrific glass paperweight, probably by Baccarat. The bottom of the weight has a beautiful intaglio engraving of a dog. The periphery of the crown is decorated with molded pillars similar to Baccarat's "Swirl" pattern of the late 19th century. The 6/1 printie pattern cut into the top of the crown multiplies the pattern nicely. The glass is of the finest quality, bright and heavy. Although I've not seen this weight definitely identified as a Baccarat product, all the clues add up to a fairly firm attribution. Similar weights, although of much lesser quality, were made by New England Glass Company and Gillinder.

Origin: probably France, circa 1880. Condition: excellent, a few tiny roughnesses along the edges of some of the side printies and along the basal rim. Size: 3-1/8" diam., 1-3/4" high.
