I was, in fact, bidding on that latest one last night and got sniped at the last second; these clear glass, etched HBO paper-weights are (apparently) just a promo item and are not generally available, much like other GoT promo merchandise that HBO produced for the show last year. Serious collectors are getting savvy to these GRRM/HBO items, as you just saw demonstrated last night. Being one of them, I'm not at all happy I lost that auction; but having been an eBayer for 14 years, I've learned that patience is a virtue--that and to make frequent site searches.
If that remains so for this glass Iron Throne item, you'll have purchased a pretty nice, rare show collectible--and at a real bargain price, too!
Laser-etched, glass paper weights (and paper weights in general) are a serious collectible with a harecore collectors' following; I have a few other (non-Game of Thrones) transparent laser-etched paper-weights among my various collections; they display nicely, especially when lit from below with lighted display stands that are also available.

I put my paperweight on a base that lights up and reflects through the Iron Throne. It's cool.
