French Leaded Crystal Domed Paperweight with Snowflake Bas Relief (LEO Design)


At this early point in the season—still one week away from winter—we've already seen frequent dustings of snow, though none of it has "stuck."  But just give it time!  Before long, we'll be heading outside, shovels in-hand.

This French crystal paperweight, probably from the Eighties, depicts a delicate snowflake—"frozen" for all time.  And unlike the white stuff outside, this snowflake won't melt.  It will provide a reminder, year 'round, of the cool, crisp season which is certain to return.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome (and useful) accessory.
