An absolutely exquisite and very unique, large hand blown European crystal art glass paperweight shaped like a favorite fruit - a pear.
This gorgeous paperweight is hand crafted in the Czech Republic by master glass artists.
The Pear paperweight is approximately 5-1/2 inches high (including the stem), 2-1/2 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches deep (highest/widest/deepest points).
The base is made from solid clear glass with a hole in it. The hole has a layer of gorgeous red glass that comes through the clear glass when viewed at different angles. Thus, portions of the clear glass appear red - how much or how little depends on the light and angle. This rare and interesting optical effect is just marvelous! The leaf and stem are made of a beautiful, vivid green glass. Where the colors are not infused into the glass mass, they are protected by a layer of clear glass so that they will not fade and will always retain their brilliant color.
Each Paperweight is entirely hand crafted and a unique original. For this reason, the size, weight, color and shape will vary slightly from that shown in the picture.
This wonderful item is an excellent addition to a paperweight or a glass or crystal pear collection.
The Paperweight is new, imported directly from the Czech Republic.
