Antique Carved Stone Paper Weight
This beautiful antique paper weight is carved of natural stone. The base appears to be a slate or black marble and the subject a beautifully done Bacchante. The female follower of the God of wine is depicted here with grape vines in her hair. She is carved in relief with intricate details.
I would date this piece to the late 1800's. It does have some chips to the black stone which I show in the pictures. I believe this piece to be a paper weight but it could be framed to keep it safe. It measures 5-5/8'' x 3-3/4''.
