This antique glass paperweight has a real photo street scene which is laid inside the glass. On the left, there's a nice Victorian house with a porch, and next to it, a church with a clock and a steeple. The profile of a young man wearing spectacles and a bowtie is on the right.
We assume that the man had some connection to the house and/or the church.
The paperweight is the standard size that was made circa early 1900s...4 by 2 3/4 inches by just under 1 inch high. Some contained advertising and many were souvenirs of a meaningful place.
The back of the weight has some printing, some of which we can make out. 'MANUFACTURED BY MILDRED ?? & CO. - (Name) STREET - NEW YORK. We couldn't find anything more on the company.
Top glass has a couple of age-related scratches and bottom sealer insert is showing wear but overall, this old glass paperweight is in very good condition.
