This clear glass whale is not as heavy as a live whale, but heavy enough to hold down papers. This is clear glass, 4 3/4" high at the tail, 6 1/4" long, and 2 3/8" wide at the head This art glass marine creature is signed on the bottom, with a script name that appears to start with an "L" or "Y" followed by ouette L" or "ouelte L". If you recognize the artist, please email me, as I have searched websites with no success. This little guy would be a cute decoration on a patio and could hold down papers when you read or work outside. I have a few other paperweights listed here, and will combine orders for discount and shipping savings. Please email me with any questions you may have and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
