This is a rather unusual paperweight which is unsigned by a maker. It features a clear glass ball with interior "vines" made of multicolored glass in browns, orange, pale green and a light blue-grey. Within and among the "vines' are nested clear bubbles of several sizes. It looks like something that would be on a wizard's table! It measures 3" tall and 3 1/4" in diameter. There is an unevenness to the ball near the top on one side which makes the weight appear to have almost a point at the top and there is, at the bottom, quite a bit of polishing around the pontil and base. My suspicion is that this is the work of a person learning the art of glassmaking, perhaps an apprentice. It also seems to have some age, judging by the bottom of the piece and its wear. In any event it is interesting and attractive in its own way.
