Paperweights came into being back in 1845 when a Venetian glass-maker named Pietro Bigaglia first created and exhibited his designs at the Vienna Industrial Exposition.
Since then they've taken many forms and have evolved from functional pieces to often simply a display of decadence and style.
These beautiful jellyfish paperweights each contain a colourful and exquisite replica of the magnificent creature, held permanently suspended within the glass.
The bubbling within each jellyfish paperweight is completely unique, a wonderful benefit of glass-making and they are delicatelyheldwithin a black and silver gift box that is completed by a silk lining - the perfect gift for a person who has it all, perhaps?
The jellyfish paperweights are available in seven colours, both available in a smaller and larger size.Product Information:
Here at Brown and Ginger we promise to do our best to have a positive impact on our environment, we've switched to paper tape which is not only easier for you to open (no scissors required!) but it's easier on the environment. We also use 100% starch packing chips which simply melt away under water and FSC certified voidfill paper.
Only where absolutely neccessary do we use plastic packaging which has been re-used from other packaging, come with the product from the factory or, when shipping mirrors or particularly delicate items, to provide the extra protection to stop the items breaking in transit.
We have also recently made the switch to eco bubble wrap for those items where we want to make extra sure it gets to you safely. This is green and can be recycled with your other plastic.
We're working with our suppliers to reduce their use of plastic and will always do our best to ensure we're being as ethical as possible in all of our practices.
