This is a rare abstract paperweight by Margot Thomson
It is called Spinning Jenny and is dated to 1993
It comes from a limited edition of only 350 weights (and closed at 120 weights). It originally retailed for £150 - which reflected the complexity of the design. This paperweight is No 106.
The weight is ball-shaped and inherently clear in colour. The outside of the weight is opaque frosted glass - and around the side are polished circular facets which allow you to see inside. The title Spinning Jenny refers to all the patterns - like spun grey, silver and white threads that you can see tangled up in the center of the weight.
It measures about 3 inches in diameter.
It is a very sophisticated weight that is in good vintage condition - with no chips, scratches or damages.
I have been unable to find another one of these on offer for sale - so it is deemed to be a rare weight - this is reflected in my asking price for this special one.
