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. This take on Saturn features the planet and its moons silhouetted against the darkness of space in golden dichro brilliance. The black/dark glass is actually a dark blue cobalt that is really gorgeous in hand if backlit at all. The piece is in flawless new condition, and signed 'GES 03 Saturn'.
