Brass Paperweight - Square
Futagami

$60.00 USD
  • Introduction

    I am a brass square paperweight. I pin down papers like an acclaimed heavyweight champion. I’m a small little guy but pack a big punch.  Those other guys don’t have a fighting chance against me!

     

  • Curator's Notes

     

    This square (14 sided) paperweight is a great addition for any desk. It can pin down papers, business cards or receipts. We love the subtle textural difference as two sides of the polyhedron have smooth brushed finishes while the others feature a crude casting surface. Their weight feels substantial and appropriate for daily use while the slow oxidization of the brass keeps its coloration and texture looking richer over many years of usage.

    Square Paperweight was curated by Stevenson Aung
