Bigaglia is credited with making the first documented glass paperweights using bits of twist & latticino, aventurine, and Franchini millefiori & murrine. This example includes numerous three rose murrine canes, a central large partial section of a rose bush murrine, and several other complex Franchini cane sections scattered throughout.
