I hate to state the obvious, but it really does look like winter. Reminds me of a cross between the frozen house in the movie Doctor Zhivago and a frosty night in an enchanted forest. This is a gorgeous paperweight. As a concept, the notion of winter is perfectly carried out.

Stunning!  :shock:  I'd love one!   You don't show the price, Frank.  Any idea where I can find out what it is?

It is in current production, I presume autumn release for 2004. So close to being withdrawn if not yet fully subscribed.

If you do not want it, let me know as I am tempted now that my vase has sold and a dust ring needs filling.
