1983 Limited Edition paperweight produced by Whitefriars for the Smithsonian Institution. I’m not sure what the name of this paperweight is. Scattered millefiori canes on transparent green flash, all encased in clear. Small viewing window at top and rest of paperweight is diamond faceted in the Whitefriars P3 pattern (I think). One of the millefiori canes is the Whitefriars Monk surrounded by the numbers 1980. Etched on the concave dimple in center of base with the numbers 173 (I think this was an edition of 250). Also a Whitefriars paper label on the paperweight. Paperweight is 2-7/8″ diameter and 2″ high. Does not come with a box or any paperwork. Please view all photos as they are part of the description.
