GLASS APPLE PAPERWEIGHT - 3" CLEAR WITH CONTROLLED BUBBLES -"New York" etched on side of glass

As I acquire paperweights, that fascinating new collection I have begun, I am learning bits of terminology and a growing curiosity as to "how do they do that?". This paperweight is, I believe, called a "Controlled Bubble" design, obviously referring to the very uniform bubbles that bring the piece to life. I have yet to learn the "how".

How very appropriate that this apple, symbol of New York City and etched with her name, should be filled with bubbles, eager to escape! They capture the light and seem to depict that perpetual activity that exemplifies this vibrant city. My personal visits to New York City have been exhilarating and memorable...just like these bubbles.

The apple is about 3" in diameter and fashioned of beautiful crystal clear glass. The simple design is then accented with a golden stem and leaf, to add that Big Apple hint of glamour. The words "New York" are subtly etched in graceful lettering on one side. It is in beautiful condition.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
