Wonderful heavy brass contributor statue or paperweight with revolving medallion from the 1972 Summer & Winter Olympics. Made by premier jeweler Balfour of Massachusetts. This modern geometric design sit on a triangle base with a two sided round medallion that rotates on its axis. One side says "United States - 1972 Olympic Contributor" with the Olympic shield in the center. Other side says "1972 Olympics - Sapporo and Munich" with the Olympic torch and shield. Beautifully detailed craftmanship on this metal souvenir. Unfortunately this was the year of the Munich tragedy which gives this much more historic significance. Felted bottom has the original silver foil label the says "Jewelry's Finest Craftsmen - Balfour". Measures about 3" high and 2 7/8" wide. It does need a bit of polishing.
