Handblown Glass Paperweight 'Tiger Pride'
I'm going to be honest. As hard as I've tried.... I just cannot get a good image of this wonderful piece. Suffice it to say that it is luminious, dimensional and sports a tiger paw stamp on top. The bubbles line up around a rich orange center within crystal clear glass. So much fun to look at. Not so much fun to photograph!
