    Bacchus

     

    The Bacchus glass factory began creating millefiori paperweights in Birmingham, England in the 1840s. Relatively few Bacchus paperweights are known today. Millefiore paperweights, first manufactured in Venice, consist of sections from rods of colored glass encased in a clear, colorless sphere. By the mid-nineteenth century, glass factories elsewhere in Europe were emulating the millefiore style.
