Offering an antique, art nouveau, cast iron, octagon paperweight.
This eight sided paper weight has a design on each of it's angles, an alternating series of what are either insects or stylized flowers. The knob is an eight petaled flower face.
This lovely piece measures 3" across from point to point and 2 3/4" from flat side to flat side. It is about 1 3/8" in height.
Slightly fading bronze colored paint (over the iron) but no structural damage.
