The region was already home to several glassworks. Paperweight production started at St. Louis in 1845 and most likely continued until about 1860. Although the modern production of paperweights started in 1952, the output of millefiori and lampwork paperweights was small. Fewer than 400 lampwork and millefiori paperweights were made between 1952 and 1955. They were not all signed or dated. The most successful product of this early revival period was the Queen Elizabeth sulphide which was made to commemorate her coronation in 1953. After 1955, no additional weights were made at St. In 1965 the factory resumed production of lampwork and millefiori paperweights and then in 1967 they began a series of sulphide weights. Finally, in 1970 they started producing annual limited edition paperweights. Large Size: Just over 3″ diameter by just over 2″ high. The base is ground concave. Signature: Signed with a St. Condition: This paperweight is in excellent condition with the exception of two tiny circular impact marks high on the side. The foil label shows some wear.

There is a Whitefriars signature cane with a white monk and the year 1974. It comes with its original round Whitefriars box. One of my favorite Whitefriars designs. A great addition to any collection of millefiori paperweights. Please Note: The stand shown in the pictures is not included with the paperweight. It is shown for illustration only. Note on white glare : Please ignore the white areas, they are glare from the light. Note for International buyers. Modern Whitefriars paperweights are prized by collectors for their high quality glass and millefiori designs. The paperweights with mosaic canes are especially sought after. The name Whitefriars Glass dates from sometime in the 1600s. The original site had been occupied by a community of Carmelite monks known as White Friars, hence the name taken by the glass company. Some sources state that at least a portion of the company operated under the name of James Powell and Sons from 1834 to 1962. Other sources state that the Whitefriars name was used from 1680 to 1980. Limited production of millefiori paperweights and other millefiori items started some time in the 1930s and first appeared in the 1938 catalog. Millefiori items were made using English full lead crystal (33% lead oxide). It is difficult to associate specific paperweights with this production. After 1945, they made colored glass and bubble design paperweights until the modern millefiori production started about 1951. Even then relatively few designs were produced until the 1970s. In 1980, Whitefriars glass went out of business. Large Size: Just over 3″ diameter by 1 15/16″ high. The base is ground concave. Faceted with a total of 31 facets, one top facet and 30 side facets in three rows (12 + 6 + 12) Condition: Excellent condition. No chips, cracks or scratches found on inspection. Signature: Signed in the design with a Whitefriars 1974 date cane. It comes with its original Whitefriars round box. Allan’s Paperweights is owned by Allan Port.
