This is such an absolutely beautiful piece. Rick Ayotte's use of color is bold without sacrificing detail. Every serious contemporary paperweight collector should include at least one of his works.
This faceted magnum weight features a hawthorn berry bouquet, with five red berries, four white blossoms, a white bud and ten green leaves. Clear ground. Cut with a top window and six side jarinties.
Diameter: 3 5/8".
Signed/Dated: "Ayotte" " Ed/50" "'89"
Condition: Very Good to Excellent. Minimal display wear.
This is a special piece from a small edition of only 50. Owners treasure this large showy piece. I can find no auction records for one in the past eight years. I am pricing it lower than one would expect to find this particular weight.
