Description

A stunning Scandinavian green and lilac glass bird paperweight, a toucan I think . Probably made by FM Konstglas of Ronneby, Sweden, unmarked. The lilac layer is made from Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions. It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures). This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.

Size

Measures approx 6.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches in diameter at widest point.

Condition

Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
