Cast Glass Shark Clear

by the WheatonArts Glass Studio

The cast, clear glass shark paperweight emerges from the surface with teeth bared!
Measuring 4.5″ tall with a 2.75″ base diameter, this predator of the water will be a fierce addition to your decor. Consider using two together as bookends.

Paperweights have been made in this country since about 1850 and currently enjoy popularity for both practical and decorative purposes. In the South Jersey factories, paperweights were made by the glassworkers as a “whimsey” or “end-of-day” piece, not as a factory production item. They were given to friends and family as mementos.

Handcast animal figurines became popular novelties in the early 20th century. At WheatonArts, our resident artists continue the southern New Jersey tradition of paperweight making.
