I freely admit to being enthralled by any colour glass but if I see a good Hoya piece the lack of colour is no detriment at all.
This paperweight is beautifully and simply designed, has such amazing clarity, and is so perfectly ground. All hallmarks of Hoya.
Since they stopped making craft glass I think there has been a great hole left in the market that others can't fill.
Designed by the great Toshio Sugesawa it was made at the apogee of Hoya's creative production, 1990s.
