3186 Peter McDougall Medium Ribbed Millefiori Paperweight. This paperweight consists four concentric circles of millefiori around a central millefiori cane.  Although it is not a true concentric, it gives the appearance of a concentric because the pattern is so regular.  The ground is black.  It is signed in the design with a complex cane made from four separate letter canes forming the signature PMcD (as shown in the close-up). 

This is often called a pressed weight because a mold is used to form the outside ribbing.  The top is flattened.  The ribbing gives the glass a real glittery appearance as you can see in the picture.

3122 Large Peter McDougall Millefiori Paperweight Pin or Candy Dish With Gold Cross and Garland.  Colorful pin dish or candy dish with a cross of gold complex stardust millefiori canes and an outer garland of simple blue and white canes.  The design is set on a translucent cobalt blue ground.  It is signed with a paper label "PMcD Glass Studio LTD, Hand Made in Crieff Scotland." 

Scottish makers have a history of making candy dishes and other shapes out of paperweights when they realize that the product is flawed in some way.  I suspect that they also make these dishes to order.  In this case, I can see no flaws.  A paperweight of this design was originally made by Perthshire exclusively for L.H. Selman, Ltd., so it is possible Peter continued to make the design for Selman after Perthshire closed.

Crown weights are considered by some to be the most exciting of all millefiori designs.  They are extremely difficult to make.  Peter McDougall did not make many of these medium crowns.
