This is a lovely paperweight by the master of Scottish Glass, Colin Terris (1937 - 2007).
It is one of two of this particular design in my shop - there are of course some minor differences between the two - with them being handmade.
Colin Terris is acknowledged internationally as the Father of Modern Paperweight Design.
For 33 years he was the lead designer at Caithness Glass and in 1991 he was created a Member of the Order of the British Empire for his contribution to British Glass.
This is a weight entitled Sea Dance and is an earlier weight issued in the 1980s. The design is a classic one - with most of the action and movement in the weight confined to the lower section - with a crystal clear dome above.
The base is a warm olive green tone with a blush of orange on top - and five dancing bubbles issues from the sea there are little internal waves with tiny bubbles forming the ocean spray - and around the outside are five large dancing air bubbles - and a floating central one takes center stage.
Dimensions: Diameter is 3 inches - and with a height of 2 3/4 inches - so a nice large weight.
Marked stamped on the base with "Caithness Scotland SEA DANCE"
So a very fair price for this fine weight by Terris.
