This is a beautiful large substantial paperweight that the artist added many small details to make it rather different. The coral formation is exquisite in shades of blue, red and white; some blue is transparent and only blue; there are mixed colors that appear to have been carefully combined. There are four fish swimming in shades of black, blue, green, red and white. There are random bubbles around each, and one of the fish (the only one that appears to be descending deeper) has a group of bubbles over its tail, looking quite like they are going to make their way to the top where another small group of bubbles await. There is a deliberate artsy indentation in the glass at the bottom. I love finding small details that an artist may have left, and this weight does not disappoint.

Size: 4 1/4" tall; 3 3/8" diameter.

Weight: 3 1/2 lbs.

Condition: Small chip on base rim. Age wear on bottom.
