Description

eBay item number:

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
Seller notes: Very poor condition with many bruises, dings, scratches, wear and chips to bottom.
Please note I will be listing my collection of antique paperweights in the next weeks. Please check back for more listings soon. 

This is a rare antique Strawberry lampwork paperweight... I believe it to be Baccarat, c1850. There are two red strawberries and one green, not ripe strawberry on a green vine with three green leaves. The strawberries have tiny bubbles on the surface, but they do not have the tiny black dots that I have seen on the Baccarat strawberry paperweights... so please let me know if I am wrong with my attribution. Also, I do not see signs of a star cut bottom on this one. The paperweight measures 2 7/8" in diameter, and a tiny bit more than 2" tall. There are lots of dings and scratches on the top of the dome, some dings and brusing around the sides, and the bottom center has numerous dings. The ring of wear has chips around the edges and one area of considerable chipping. There are no extremely deep areas, or cracks... so my hope had been to have this professionally polished down someday. I think it could be done, but I never had it looked at by a professional restorer of paperweights. It is a rare and expensive weight, so it would be worth the attempt. I am listing this with the low starting bid of $9.99 and no reserve. Happy bidding!
