Amazing in person, difficult to capture in a photo. This spherical paperweight by Robert Eickholt epitomizes his ability to produce art glass with iridescent and dichroic properties. In the center of the clear glass are encapsulated two fat claw-like shapes in a web of shimmering iridescence; three egg-shaped bubbles hover near the tips. Swirling around these shapes is a network of ghostly, light blue ribbons which may fluoresce under a black light. The iridescent colors are pink, green and blue.
The polished bottom is inscribed Eickholt 1992 WmPa. The paperweight measures 3 1/2" high x 3 1/4" diameter and weighs 2 lb 7.2 oz. It is in great condition, no scratches or chips.
