1953 St Saint Louis Mushroom Green Double Overlay Paperweight Star Cut Base Ec:
Beautiful 1953 with SL Date Cane Green and White St Louis (Saint Louis)Double Overlay Mushroom Paperweight with Star Cut Base. Excellent Condition!
Hello, you are offerding on a beautiful 1953 Saint Louis (St Louis) green and white double overlay mushroom paperweight with an intricately cut base. Its SL1953 signature cane is inserted in the complex mushroom design. St Louis came back to making paperweights in 1952, and this mushroom weight was created the following year. The choices of colors for the overlay were red, blue, or green, the green being a particular favorite of this collector. It is a rare weight because few were made each year and it is unknown how many of each color were released. The mushroom is composed of multiple gorgeous and complex canes. It is in excellent condition with fine magnification. Its diameter is approximately 3 inches. I found it difficult to photograph this weight, so you will see both light and dark pictures. The rich green color is somewhere in between, vibrant, with clear demarkation of the white underlay beneath on each of the 5 side facets and large top facet. Any white dots on the green are from the camera light. buyers from outside the US will need to have their shipping charges calculated at sale’s end. Please check my store and other sales for Ysart, Caithness, Perthshire, and Lundberg paperweights, and other fine collectibles to save on shipping. Thank you for looking in and happy offerding!!!
