This is certainly a very stunning paperweight to add to your collection.
It was made by the glass maestro at Caithness Glass, Colin Terris (1937 - 2006).
This one is called AURORA and is CT-577.
It is number 240 out of a limited edition of just 250 pieces (fully subscribed).
This is another lovely weight by Terris. It is a fine angular one (rather than a simple ball shape) with four polished cushion-cut facets polished out on each side - there are two large ones and two small ones - through these you can view the internal design of the weight. Makes a great shape when viewed from above.
The ground colour is a dark purple - and this has a floor of raised mottled green and mustard yellow glass. In the center floats a shiny, almost metallic, bright cerise oval air bubble.
It is a great weight - made with great skill and has a simple sophistication to it.
It is of course in excellent condition with no damages. The height is 2 3/4 inches and with a diameter of 3 inches.
