Blue Dichroic BronzeBubbly Glass detailed humongous paperweight features flowing glass of greens, blues, and dichroic bronze,mixed with bubbles, yes, I said bubbles, little ones, big ones, frothy ones, clear ones, just millions and millions ofbubbles. I debatedwhether to titleit Maelstrom, or Roiling Waters, both fit beautifully. Blownin the ocean state of Florida, it truly represents well the texture and spirit ofmother nature'ssea,beautiful, yet untamable. It really is an amazing piece.
When I purchased this originally, I was advised that it looked exceptional on a lit base. I have included a photo on a lit base, the base is NOT included. It does, though it looks great without, as well. I have started listing an assortment of lighted paperweight bases, go to my store, and click the categoryLighted Paperweight Bases, for more info.
This piece is roughly 3 3/4" around.

This item is in great condition. No Scratches, No cracks, No Dings, No Dangs, Not even a Darn. Like every paperweight, vase, or piece of art glass, light scratches on the bottom, from normal shelf wear, are to be expected, and will not be noted here.
I have included a photo with a Fresca can, to help show the scale. The Fresca is NOT included, though, if you add an extra 10 bucks to your payment, I'll throw in the can.

*** Warning ~ This is a humongous heavy sucker with a shipping weight of 3 pounds. Domestic shipments will ship in a medium Flat Rate Box, at $11.95. International clients should use the "calculate shipping" button, before offerding.
I have developed a few personal policies for doing honorable business.1) While the customer is NOT always right, the customer is ALWAYS the customer, and must be treated with honesty and respect at all times.2) YES, while I only ship via US Postal Service, I will happily work with you to make the shipping as economical as possible.
*YES, I will always combine shipments if you have offers on other items, just let me know.
*YES, I will hold a shipment for a week, while you continue to fill a box, just let me know.
*YES, I will check the rates for you, to determine whether it's more economical to ship in a flat rate box, or in a "zone rate" box.
*YES, I will happily ship First Class for international shipments, however since they are limited to 4 pounds, sometimes, it's cheaper to ship one priority mail flat rate box, than to ship two first class boxes.
The way I see it, the less you pay for shipping, the more you have left to spend with me.3) I am not perfect, I will miss a large scratch, a ding, a flea-bite, etc. If you ever receive a piece that is not as described, not as pictured, or damaged in some way, not specified in the listing, then I want it back. I will issue a full refund, including the shipping, both directions. I won't, however, renegotiate the cost, due to damage, if the discrepancy is important enough to report, then I don't want you to keep the piece, even at a lower cost. On the other hand, if you want to return it because you changed your mind, or don't like it, I will happily take it back (within 30 days), however you will receive a refund for the purchase price only, not the shipping cost, and you will be responsible for the cost of returning it.I trust you find these policies fair. Thank you for reading this, and, in advance, thank you for your patronage.
This piece will ship the next business day after receiving payment.<div style="text-align:center"><a style="text-decoration:none" border="0"></a></div> Every buyer gets a MyStoreRewards invitation for cash back
