Multi colored patches and shapes appear on the surface that look like large anemones and landforms. Multi sized bubbles add to the drama of this piece. Two patches of sparkling gold iridescence can also be seen. This paperweight is from Simpson's "inhabited planet" series. It is one of the MOST FASCINATING creations I have ever listed.
The piece is in good condition without cracks, scratches or chips. The flat bottom reads: Simpson, 1991 , 5-225.
Its a fabulous planet and would be a wonderful addition to your signed art glass collection. 3 small acrylic pads have been applied to the bottom to retard scratching.
