This is a pretty vintage paperweight by Colin Terris
It is called Aquila and is dated to 1978
It comes from a limited edition of 3000 weights (and closed at 1029). It originally retailed for £35.
The weight is ball-shaped and inherently clear in colour. There is a shallow base colour - which is a dark purple tint. This shows the internal white frosted glass Scottish Aquila (or Eagle) in full flight. There are some controlled air bubbles to enhance its decorative effect. The weight rests on a circular polished base - and there is a large circular polished facet on the front that acts as a viewing window when on display.
It measures just 2 3/4 inches in diameter.
It is a very pretty weight that is in good vintage condition - with no chips, scratches, or damages. It retains its original paper label on the base.
It is a much simpler design and from a larger edition. This is reflected in the lower price of this one. It would look great on display in a Highland cottage or seaside beach house.
