Michael Hunter/Twists Glass purple zanfirico cane lizard paperweight

This novelty lizard paperweight was made by Michael Hunter for Twists Glass in 2017. The base is a complete orb of glass with a purple centre and gold and silver leaf. There is a lizard curled across and around the top of the weight. The lizard's body is a pale pink. puce, black & white zanfirico cane whilst the four legs are pale pink, pink black & white zanfirico canes.. The lizard's "toes" are purple canes. It is signed "M Hunter Twists 17" and has the Twists Glass Studio label. It is presented in a white studio box. The colour of the canes used for the body and legs is slightly different to the other purple lizard paperweights that we have had and currently I am not sure whether these canes will be used again.

Mike's lizard paperweight won Gift of the Year in 2002
