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 one was hard to capture in photographs since the outer layer of the paperweight also has a snowy design in it which the camera wanted to capture. In hand you can clearly see that like the other planets, it has the planet Neptune floating inside of the paperweight, and it is FANTASTIC, all covered in sparkly icy brilliance! Really a cool piece, don't miss this one! It is suspended inside the clear optical grade glass with a polished window cut in for viewing. The piece is in flawless new condition, and signed 'GES 03 Neptune'.
