The Swan Boat Glass Paperweight features a view of the Swan Boats of Boston bordered with a rich blue color to complement the print. Each paperweight is created by pouring hot molten glass into a mold by hand. This natural age-old molding process imbues character-rich variations and irregularities in the glass. Similar paperweights, almost identical in size and shape can be found in antique shops all over America. Ours will become the antiques of tomorrow. Until then they’ll be a treasured addition to any desk. Felt bottom.
