Antique fossilised polished black marble rectangular paperweight with black ceramic button handle 19th century circa 1899
An antique paper weight in black marble with white fossilised flecks polished into a rectangular shape with a black ceramic button shaped handle.
In good original condition with some minor damage to one corner and the bottom edge and a repair to the handle, very minor markings and scratching commensurate with age and use. Displays and holds paper down very well. Looks great on a desk or on prints.
This is a great item for display and use and is a very decorative example of antique sculpture or Victorian Grand Tour stoneware.
