A wonderful gilded bronze starburst paperweight from France, circa 1970's. The paper weight is reminiscent of the style of Line Vautrin.
On one side there is an inscription that says, "Que Cette Etoile D'An Neuf Guide Vers Vous La Joie".
Translation, " May this star of the new year guide you to joy". Would make a wonderful holiday gift!
The other side says, "Joies" (Joy)
