This piece is part of Glass Eye's planetary/celestial line of paperweights from back in the early 2000's, and I'm not sure why, but these older versions are FAR better than the ones the studio is creating today. The artist did an amazing job bringing Pluto to life in this piece, with a gorgeous mottled pink and dicrhoic gold take on it, over that deep black base, SO beautiful! It is suspended inside the clear optical grade glass with a polished window cut in for viewing. The opalescent outer coating of the piece is killer! The piece is in flawless new condition, and signed 'GES 02 Pluto'.
