PW2068. Victor Trabucco Enormous Floral Pedestal Paperweight/Glass Sculpture from 2001. To appreciate the enormity of this piece, take out a ruler to see how tall 5 ¼ inches is. Then ponder the weight of  nine and a half pounds. This is not only large, it is a perfectly executed work of glass art with an impeccable floral bouquet on a bed of lace. According to Paul Dunlop in The Dictionary of Glass Paperweights, Victor Trabucco’s muslin grounds are “the most delicate muslin ever made and adds a real touch of elegance to his designs.” His larger weights may contain as many as 5,000 pieces of filigree (individual muslin strands), according to Paul who probably counted them. This paperweight is in excellent condition. It is perfect. It all works perfectly well together as an enormous pedestal paperweight because of the perfect balance of size and shape with the large floral bouquet of camellias and berries around a sumptuously delicate rose. The base is signed Trabucco 2001. (In one of the pictures I put a regular 3 inch Saint Louis weight next to this one just to show the size.) Diameter 5 ½ inches; height 5 ¼ inches; 9 ½ pounds. $2850
