About this design

Mini Fruits consists of small paperweights, typically 3.5 to 4.5 cm in size, in the shape of fruits, eggs, birds and mushrooms. They are made of clear glass covered with gold leaf. They have a matt (fumed) or clear finish (unfumed).

Examples

Mini Fruits egg
Mini Fruits mushroom
Mini Fruits pear

The pear on the right was made in the early 1990s and has less gold leaf than the egg and mushroom that were made later. It does not seem that the gold has been rubbed off with time.
