Rare and exceptional, this Antique French Presse Papier, or paperweight, has a lovely, elegant hand, which can be moved up and down with the little push pin on the top of the lacey sleeve. The bronzed hand is exquisite, cast beautifully and wearing a ring, the sleeve is decorated with lace and a ribbon bow, divine! The color is a little darker, I had to lighten the photos so you could see all the detail. If you have been looking for an amazing gift {perhaps for you?!} this is it.

The hand can be lifted allowing you to put a note or letter underneath, then closes down to the heavy marble base to hold the paper in place. In good condition, there is a chip on the base which is not too noticable because of the black color. I forgave this extremely collectable piece this as this is such an extremely rare to find example of a paper holder. The color is a dark patina, I have not polished this as I know some of you prefer original patina. Display with your collection of 18th and 19th century paper weights, on your French desk, this truly is a work of art.
