This is a very attractive paperweight by Paul Ysart.
It was made when he was working for Harland Glass Studios, and as such is signed below with an H cane.
A really special weight and of course in excellent condition with no damages.
The weight has a speckled ground of a scrummy sugar pink colour.
I love the flower in the centre of the weight - this flower is made with the inclusion of glittering aventurine to the glass - and when turned to the light the flower twinkles.
Around the edge of this weight are a series of tiny controlled air bubbles - which created little downward facing peaks below the ground. There are eight of this pearl like air bubbles.
I hope that my photographs do this lovely weight justice.
Dimensions: diameter is 2 1/2 inches and the height is about 2 inches.
Weight: 324 grams.
