Rare Faceted Bohemian Amanita Muscaria Glass Paperweight

$5,500

About

A mid to late 19th century Czech paperweight, showing the mastery of Czech glass blowing. A similar example is in the Bergstrom-Mahler Glass Museum in Neenah, Wisconsin. It doesn't have the vibrancy nor the white dots that this one has and isn't quite the same quality. This one just feels magical when you hold it, and how you can see up inside the mushroom. Please watch attached video.
