Photos do not do justice to this incredibly beautiful weight by the well-known and always in demand Paul Stankard. Some say he is the greatest living paperweight artist. He certainly ranks among the very top contemporary artists. There are a number of books and publications, articles, etc about him here and in Europe. I have a personally signed copy of "A Floating World" about Paul Stankard, put out by the Museum Of Arts And Design. It is one of my "treasures." I have particularly enjoyed this weight with the profusion of orchids among the green leaves.
