PW2616. Baccarat 1993 numbered edition (#87 of 150) stunning magnum (lucky) seven blossom crocus on snow. Baccarat made crocus weights earlier but this one is the best I have seen – perfectly beautiful blossoms. Engraved with the Baccarat logo on the base and “87” “1993”. This paperweight (this very one not just one of the other 149) is pictured in the most complete Baccarat book ever published, Baccarat Paperweights: Two Centuries of Beauty by Paul Dunlop. This paperweight is pictured on page 220.  2 1/4 inch diameter;  2 1/4 inches tall; one pound and nine ounces. Condition is excellent. It will bring you good luck. $600

 
 
 

PW720. Baccarat Limited Edition Magnum Museum piece, 1971 Limited Edition. Spaced complex millefiori on muslin. Some would call this a chequer. The diameter is 3 3/8 inches; weight 1 pound, 11 ounces. The bottom is marked with the Baccarat logo, 1971 and #373. Date cane “B1971”. Almost perfect condition with minute shelf wear. Baccarat used this general design over a number of years and some were better than others. This is a far nicer weight than most of the others of the Baccarat spaced on muslin I have seen (some of the early ones are not very well done). Unusually excellent condition for such an old paperweight. $450

PW2796. Baccarat Modern Museum Piece 1994* Limited Edition of 100 – NUMBER 65. Magnolia. In 1994 Baccarat made six limited edition weights – all of floral. Dunlop wrote: “The edition sizes were smaller this year and the weights larger. The bouquets are elegant, exhibiting advanced lampworking skills.”

This paperweight (this very one, not just one of the other 99) is pictured in the most complete Baccarat book ever published, Baccarat Paperweights: Two Centuries of Beauty by Paul Dunlop. This paperweight is pictured on page 222. Condition is excellent. Limited edition of 100 and numbered 65/100 along with 1994 for the year and etched with the Baccarat logo. Comes with box and original certificate of authenticity. 3 1/8 inch diameter; 2 5/16 inches tall; the glass paperweight weighs one and a half pounds.  $850


PW2745. Baccarat Modern Museum Piece 1991* Limited Edition of 200 – NUMBER 28. Fleur de tournesol stylisee or Stylized Sunflower. A vivid piece of art. It is different from what came before, arguably experimental, as if the goal were to take the simple but lovely sunflower and make it as dramatic as possible –like the corona in a total eclipse of the sun (which I was thankful to witness this summer).

This paperweight (this very one, not just one of the other 199) is pictured in the most complete Baccarat book ever published, Baccarat Paperweights: Two Centuries of Beauty by Paul Dunlop.

PW2254. Baccarat Modern Museum Piece 1990* Limited Edition of 200 – NUMBER 13. Rose sur fond filigrane (rose on filigree ground) It’s a beautiful rose – red turning to frosty at the tips of the petals. It sits atop a perfect double spiral filigree crystal ground.

Condition is excellent. Limited edition of 200 and numbered 13/200 along with 1990 for the year and etched with the Baccarat logo. Comes with box and original certificate of authenticity. 3 1/8 inch diameter; 2 5/8 inches tall; this large, attractive glass paperweight weighs one pound and seven ounces.  $700
