Brass House Paperweight

Regular price $85 Unit price  per 

Description:
Designed by Takashi Hirayama, this paperweight from Holz Japan is simple and emotional. The minimalist house-shape stands as a symbol for home, and its substantial weight is sure to ground you in even the most turbulent circumstances. Perfect as a housewarming gift or token for someone embarking on travels that may take them far away from home.

Variation:
Available in either textured, bright gold or stained brown brass. These paperweights will patina over time and change in color as they are lovingly handled.

History: 
Handmade with traditional bronze casting in Takoaka City, Toyama Prefecture. Takoaka has been the Japanese capital of bronze casting since the Edo period.

 

Measurement:
1.5" x 1.5" x 1.5"

Materials: 
Brass.

Care Instructions:
Brass will naturally patina over time. Oil and air will naturally darken this piece and make it shinier. This is part of its natural beauty. Do not use chemicals to clean. If exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time, it may cause the metal to change color quicker or spot.
