Visitors will delight in the rare and spectacular paperweights in this “postscript” to the Small Worlds exhibition from the FIA collection and private collections. One example is a paperweight similar to one that was featured in a 2012 episode of BBC’s Antiques Roadshow. In this exhibition (Rose, Pansy, and Thistle Bouquet by Clichy) features a bouquet of flowers containing Clichy’s signature pink millefiori rose, two thistles cupped by a thick green ring of spurs, and a purple and pale yellow pansy. Similar arrangements of flowers are known, and the Roadshow’s host suggested that it acts as a commemoration of the alliance between England, Scotland, and France during the Crimean War (1853–56).
