Unusual Murano Art Glass Paperweight JFK Kennedy Sulphide overlay & Torsade

Rough Dimensions: 3-1/2" diameter & 2-1/2” tall

Makers Mark: unsigned

Condition:  No condition issues to the upper surface. Minor shelf wear to the flat polished base. There is an internal annealing fracture behind the back of the head and neck of the sulphide. Please see photos and let us know if you need any additional assistance. 

A very unusual example. The typical Murano JFK sulphide will be much simpler in design with the sulphide placed over an transparent color ground of simply encased in clear glass. This unique example has the sulphide placed over a black gold speckled cushion with a red & white torsade around the central motif then finished a green over white overlay and 5+1 faceting.
