This is a weight entitled Starry Night - and the design was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's famous painting. It dates to 2002 and was made by Helen Macdonald - it is part of the Museum Collection - looking at works by Van Gogh. It was made specifically for the American market.
It has a dark blue base with swirls of white colours - which are reminiscent of scudding clouds in the sky - the stars are suggested with little botches of yellow glass - a little patch of dark, inky blue sky is seen at the top of the weight.
It is inscribed with the design name on the base. A harder-to-find Caithness paperweight.
Dimensions: Diameter is 3 1/4 inches - and with a height of 3 inches - so a nice large weight. The weight unpacked is 700 grams.
