No doubt, its 5:00 somewhere in the world and time to start happy hour.

Everybody loves pretty glass paperweights and this is certainly an interesting piece. The different layers of the yellows, reds, blues and greens almost resemble cupcake cups stacked on each other all compressed into a star form that is very colorful and appealing. The pontil mark on the bottom and the wear on the base show use and the entire surface has a very few small nicks that make the piece more appealing. This could have been on your Grandparents desk and you just inherited it. A great traditional piece.
