Lead Crystal Paper Weight

Not as difficult to photograph as what I thought it would be.  It is a snow flake design, as you can see. When inverted and glass wafers are places in the indentation, what it looks like it to the right.

One of these was photographed using a flash and the other, just with the light of a lamp shining overhead. The effect is flattened in the one on the right but the two are similar enough to not notice
too many differences. I was originally unsure which one was taken with the flash but I think it is the one on the left. The details are sharper and there is more depth.
