An unusual modern Baccarat that breaks from the traditional paperweight form. It features faceted multisided crystal block with a black enamel images of buildings bare trees in winter and a quiet bridge with two lovers in embrace. What at first seems like a simple design is actually rather complex and well planned with thoughtfully placed that ultimately makes for a wonderful and richly filled world created by the inner play of the reflections as the paperweight is held and observed from various perspectives. Can you see the  silhouette of the two lovers embracing one another on the bridge. This rare design is uncommon, especially here in the states and was likely reserved for sale to the European market.
