What a wonderful old desk accessory – it serves three purposes and takes up very little space. The solid glass block, measuring 4 3/16” wide, 2” deep and 2 7/16 to the top of the coiled wire, weighs 1 lb. – certainly heavy enough to hold down papers on your desk. There is also an indented area at the front to hold pens or pencils, and the coiled wire can hold either pens or mail. A pretty versatile little piece. It is marked on the bottom W N Co. inside of a diamond. It is in excellent probably antique condition with no chips or cracks in the glass. The wire is a bit askew, but that just testifies to how much it was used over the years.
This would be an interesting addition to your vintage desk or as a conversation piece. Please contact us if you have any questions.
