The Nourot Glass Studio of Benicia California have been producing elegant art glass pieces since 1974. The studio has been glass makers to the Pope, U.S. Presidents, major corporations, and anyone else who appreciates extreme quality. All pieces are hand made and signed, as is this one.
I purchased this sphere, orb, paperweight (whichever you prefer to call it) recently at an estate sale. As for the size, holding a ruler up to it, it measures about 3.5 inches side to side, so it's considered mid to large range. For comparison purposes, it's about the size of a softball. It has a 2.25 inch flat spot on bottom for sitting stationary. It is signed on the bottom with "Nourot.WW.10.01.JW".
It's clear glass with a yellow coil type of design inside with flakes of gold. There are also white swirls. I did wash it using Dawn dish soap, but I didn't get carried away for fear of dropping it.
It is a heavy piece. Shipping will be via USPS Flat Rate packaging. It will be shipped insured and with signature confirmation required.
Buyer to pay delivery charges of $9.95. If you live in or near Arizona, it may be more cost effective to mail it via regular Priority Mail. If you'd like to send me your zipcode, I can check the cost for you.
Remember, the package must be signed for at the time of delivery.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING depends on the country. Buyer must contact seller for shipping quote before making purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
To avoid excess shipping charges, please contact seller for combined shipping charges if multiple purchases are desired.
All items in my listings come from either garage or estate sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
