This gorgeous glass paperweight was owned by my mother for many years. I was always taken by its beauty. I loved the iridescent, glittering colors and the swirling piece in the center. I was enchanted by the way light danced through it. I also liked the air bubbles trapped in the glass.
Before a move, my mom was compelled to rid herself of unnecessary objects. She wanted to lighten her load by having a moving sale. This paperweight did not end up selling and she asked me if I wanted it. I was more than happy to take it off her hands.
When this baby is not holding down papers on my desk, I sometimes leave it on a window ledge to add beauty to the space.
I measured the width of the widest part of the paperweight, and it measured 3 inches across.
The paperweight is quite durable since it has lasted many years. It is made of thick, sturdy glass and is a heavy-weight. The bottom is tapered a bit and flat, so the paperweight does not roll around. I think the quality is quite good.
