This sparkling blue and crystal controlled bubble paperweight base vase has a classic mid century design. The base appears to be identical to paperweights which were produced by Viking and Pilgrim, however I have not been able to find any evidence to confirm one or other as the maker.
The base of this piece has a large bubble in the center, surrounded by blue glass and cased in clear. The clear glass layer contains the tiny controlled bubbles which were produced by a skilled artist. The vase portion has a flowing, organic form reaching to the sky.
This piece measures 9" tall and about 4" wide at the widest point. It is hand blown and in excellent condition with no chips, nicks or cracks at all.
