Paperweight Paperweight VSL Belgium 1880

€115,00
Glass paperweight.

A paperweight is an object that can be placed on a desk on paper, to prevent them from being blown away.This goes back a long time, in Egypt she already used paper wights.

The word comes from French and is pronounced that way.

In French, paperweights are written in the singular and plural.

In Dutch, an extra s is only written in the plural. That s is not pronounced.

A paperweight is often made of metal, glass or stone. It is usually not too big so it can be easily stored in a drawer. It does take some weight.

A paperweight is used less and less, partly because the windows in modern offices usually cannot be opened.

In earlier centuries, when the paperweight was a common utensil, the aim was often to make the object as aesthetically pleasing as possible.

Later it also became a work of art. Eventually the paperweight fell into disuse, but it is still made only as an art object with no functional value.

The modern paperweight has therefore become a collector's item and often designed especially for collectors. More modern materials are also used here, such as polyester, laser-engraved crystal and the like.

In the years after paperweights came into use, these objects have been further developed into snow globes.
