Description

This paperweight is made in a six-step process. Stones are selected from the river and cleaned, then covered with plaster, dried and sanded four times. Artisans draw the pattern of fish on the stones, and apply lacquer and silver leaf. They paint the detail of the fish, then apply two layers of varnish, sanding the stones under water after the first layer, and polishing with their palm after the second layer, to avoid crushing the lacquer.

  • LOVED IT!!

    I actually bought this with the intention of keeping it but once my 13 year old daughter saw it I knew she would appreciate it. She has called it her good luck charm for school work. The craftsmanship is beautiful and it's a wonderful piece to have. I think I will have to get another one just for me...

    Bought as a gift for one of my co-workers, think he'll really like it....

  • Beautiful gift for a business professional. I bought this for one of my bosses and he thought it was so lovely. Certainly worth the purchase.

  • Very attractive, heavier than I thought it would be. Will look good on the desk.
