This is one of a small number of beautiful Scottish paperweights designed by the glass maestro William Manson - which are available my Iconic Edinburgh online store.
This lovely weight is called Rose Garland - and is number 71 out of a small limited edition of 100 (as annotated on the base).
It closed at 95 - so not so many where made as originally projected.
It is fully inscribed with edition details, title etc on the base.
There is a little WM cane between the flower heads.
It was issued in 1992.
Sadly - it has no box or certificate, but complete with all details signed on the base.
It is a fine example - and is a cushion cut with facets all around.
The ground is a dark emerald green colour.
Inside the weight - there are two large beautifully rendered, delicate lampwork flowers - these are in bright pink and blue. The detail on the two flowers is totally amazing.
Certainly - as fine an example of this type of weight as you might expect to find.
It is in damage free condition, and as you can see a really fabulous example.
It has a diameter of 2 3/4 inches and a height of 2 inches.
Weight: 442 grams
HAPPY TO POST INTERNATIONALLY.
