Hey Guys,,,,,,,,

Well in addition to the mysterious Paperweight I posted, here are photos of two Millefiori Ink Bottles with the mysterious "B" CANE which I cannot identify !!

Thanks to everyone out there who are far better equipped to answer,
Who, What, Where, and When,,,,,,,,,,,I have a lot more photos if anyone would like to see them.

    Hi Roger:
    "B" typically stands for Baccarat. You can read more about paperweights here:

    Thanks Belltown,,,,,,,,If only that were the answer,,,,,Unfortunately the "B" could be for Jim Brown who worked at the Perthshire factory in Scotland, or for the year 1969-70, but I am afraid that it is of Scottish origin ! If it does turn out to be Baccarat I will take another long cruise,,,,,,,Thanks for your comments I do appreciate any and all thoughts. Roger in BSAS

    Good Afternoon Roger

    I have found the most wonderful website for glass signitures and hall marks that
    you may log onto as a quest.
    Please check your items ( you may need a magniying glass) and compare.
    It has proved invaluable for me with obscure pieces.
    It is glassmarks lexikon.
    Good Luck

    Is that a black B in a white cane? Ray Banford used a similar cane from the 80's on but I don't know if he made ink/perfume bottles and it does have an english/scottish look to it. I also went through Dictionary of Paperweight Signature Canes but found nothing specific. Enjoy them anyway.

    Hi there, Iknow its a long while ago but just a comment on the inkwell with the B cane, the bottle shape, cane formation and colours are rather Bacchus.
