Paul Ysart - Millefiori
This 1930s concentric millefiori weight is both bright and dark at the same time!
The central feature of orange and yellow canes around a large blue, orange and white cane is the focal point. The next row of alternating red and blue canes is also quite noticeable because of the white centres of each cane.
The outer row consists of alternating complex canes but with more muted colours. In fact, the dominant dark pink (purple?) used in both canes tends to merge into the similar colour of the ground of the weight.
