Window Weight by Unknown Artist

This is a spectacular Chinese made paper weight with a blue and clear jelly fish at the core consisting of a mass of tiny bubbles then a gather of clear glass is added. A black layer with gold flecks is applied before a final thick layer of clear. After the piece has been annealed a facet is cut on one side which is then polished to reveal the design within. The bottom is also ground and polished so that when placed on a light base it glows with a multitude of colours; a true triumph for the artist. My only wish is that the ChineseĀ  artisans making such superb pieces would sign their work.
