Two Glass Paperweights, Boston & Sandwich Glass Company or New England Glass Company, third quarter 19th century, one with a blue poinsettia with a millefiore center with five lampwork leaves set on a white latticinio cushion; and a fruit group with four red and yellow pears and leaves and three cherries on a white latticinio ground, (light scratches, base edge chips), ht. 1 5/8, 2 3/8, dia. 2 1/2, 2 5/8 in.
The fruit group paperweight has a small white inclusion on base edge with a chip in that location, (it may possibly have been done to even the base, if the inclusion stuck out too far); surface scratches but clarity still very good.
Blue poinsettia weight has all over light scratches, clarity not perfect but pretty good.
