If a snake can be cute, this one is just about as cute as can be - besides flowers are not for everyone. The pint sized lampwork snake features green back with a complimenting yellow underside as he rests on a mottle earthen ground. There is something particularly special about lampwork creatures, whether it be snake, lizard, turtle, or frog. They have a special way of captivating the imagination, one can almost picture the sculpture coming to life. And if it's good enough for the French, consider it good enough to grace very finest shelf, desk, or mantle. Needless to say, the French have been making paperweights featuring snakes for over 150 years!
