This is certainly a fine and very interesting Scottish paperweight.
It was made by the paperweight artist, Helen MacDonald.
It is entitled Covenant and is CT-1177
It from a very small limited of only 75 weights (fully subscribed) and on its release it had a price ticket of £225.
This one No. 25 out of the 75 issued as inscribed on the base.
It is a very intricate design and would have taken great skill to have made this one.
The weight is a ball shape - with a flat faceted viewing window to the front - on the back is a deeply engraved star shape - which shows as a dramatic pattern when viewed through the front.
Inside, there is a little miniature scene showing the biblical scene with the tablets of the covenant at the front and two large abstract figures of golden angels to the back.
The base colour is a bright blue shade.
Obviously with such a small edition number - this is a much harder weight to source.
It is in good vintage condition with no chips or cracks.
Dimensions: Height is 3 inches - and at the widest point it is 3 1/4 inches.
Unpacked it weighs: 700 grams.

Another paperweight that I have been wanting. As with Walking on Water, and the other two I will review, Valerie worked with me over the last year to make the purchase work! I highly recommend Valerie!!
