For your consideration, a 1 ½" work in pewter by Judy Vilmain and David Klinger, artists well known for their work in pewter. The 20th century work is entitled "Angels Fly Because They Take Themselves Lightly"; these words were penned by Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936), a British journalist, scholar, novelist, short-story writer, and poet. The paperweight is styled after printing type and features the embossed image of an angel on one of its sides. The piece is in good vintage condition (see photos) and is stamped with the maker's initials. A timeless piece and one to be enjoyed as a family heirloom for many generations.
