This is certainly a very stylish paperweight to add to your collection.

It was made by the glass maestro at Caithness Glass, Colin Terris (1937 - 2006).

This is a more minimalistic space-age design called MOON MOUNTAIN.  

It is number 106 out of a limited edition of just 750 pieces (closed at only 284 produced). It was retailed at £65 when first issued back in 1993 - so a rather expensive weight in its day.

The weight has a thin bright green ground sprinkled with tiny controlled bubbles. The weight is supposed to resemble the surface of the moon - and the base as lots of finger-like peaks Above it is a floating air bubble and a halo surrounding it of tiny controlled bubbles. Behind the scene, down the center, there is a strange line or dividing plane inside the weight - not sure if this was in the making or a flaw - to me, it seems to be part of the design - and is semi-circular in shape - and clear in tone - like the glass used in the dome. It is more obvious when the weight is viewed from a side angle. You can see this in my first image. 

Apart from this strange internal frisure or plane - there are no other issues with the weight. I have priced it accordingly. It remains a more complicated and rather rare weight - just under 300 were actually made. 

The weight measures 2 3/4  inches in height with a diameter of 3 inches. 

The weight unpacked is 625 grams. 

It will cost £4.95 to send to the UK with Royal Mail Recorded. This will be applied at the checkout stage.
