This lion's head paperweight was made by Michael Hunter for Twists Glass in 2016. The small round base is in dark colbalt blue glass and has a moulded orange glass lion's head applied to the top. The base is scratch signed "M Hunter Twists 16 PCA 2017 Christmas Special" and has the Twists Glass studio label. I found this at our last visit to the studio and persuaded Mike & Sue to release it as I loved it so much. This weight was made as a sample for the Paperweight Collectors of America to be given as a table fancy at one of their future events. The Association did not proceed with the order - which is very fortunate for me (and the eventual buyer) as I was able to buy it - this is in effect a prototype.
