This beautiful piece of vintage, hand made studio art glass was produced by the Vines Studio and is made using ash from the 1980 Mt St Helen's volcanic eruption to create the iridescent sheen on the surface. This is an apple shaped paperweight with a mottled red color in crystal clear glass. The apple is topped with a large green leaf and stem.
This piece measures 3 1/2" in height and 2 3/4" in diameter. In excellent condition it has no chips, nicks or cracks. It is signed "MSH ASH Vines 1993" on the base. This beautiful paperweight would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
