Paperweight 'Nautical Teal'
This glass paperweight captures the pattern of a sea urchin or starfish. The bubbles create the illusion of the underwater environment and evoke the mystery found within the sea. Hefty in weight with a supremely smooth surface. Place on a solid surface, a window sill or a light base to bring the depth of color to life.
