Whitefriars Beautiful and Rare Pre-Production Trial Large Owl Paperweight on Light Blue - designed by Geoffrey Baxter.
Especially rare due to the concentric ring of yellow canes which is usually blue in the production design.
This design was eventually produced in limited numbers in 1980 but this one was made as part of the pre-production trial.
Bought from the private Collection of Earnest Miller, father of Stuart Miller (Whitefriars Assistant to the Chief of Design Geoffrey Baxter) along with a number of other trial pieces, friggers and one-off Experimental Pieces of Whitefriars Glass.
Stuarts father Earnest took a keen interest in Stuarts work and amassed a large collection of rare and experimental pieces which Geoffrey Baxter would give to Stuart from his office or the design department at Whitefriars, to take home to his father to add to his collection.
This would have been a variant part of a design trial that was then put into production, a real gem amongst whitefriars paperweights.
A stunning and beautiful design which adds quality and rarity to any display.
Excellent Condition with no damage.
Approximately 3 inches Diameter.
Sure to be the envy of any paperweight collection.
