    I believe after careful examination of their on-line images that this is one of the "Glass Eye Studio" paperweights.

    The first photo is backlit to show the interior better. The second shows the unusual coating of the back and the third shows the slightly chamfered rim. The translucent back and chamfered rim are very common in the Glass Eye items of similar shape to this one.

    My Problem is that they deny that it is one of their making, but I can't see anyone going to the trouble of reproducing a weight like this. It would be just too costly to justify the time needed.

    Can anyone give me a series name for this item?

      You mean the Celestial Series of GES?

      I wonder if Alan T. ( UK ) would know?

      ( Hi ahremck - Nice to see you !! )

      Also the surface is like a "Pebble Glass Paperweight".....?? ( Like some Heron Glass PW ?? )

      Is the bottom right flat or concave a bit ? Thanks

      The bottom is rounded and the blue surface is more like a "paint" than say due to frit.
