This is a really Stunning clear and coloured Lucite (resin) paperweight, circa 1950's / 1960's. Country of origin is unknown but very much in the American Mid Century Modern style.

A Great piece with its Atomic-era style abstract form, and displaying an underwater Sea scene complete with shells, fish and a Starfish. All encased in a clear resin block with the rear coloured a blue / yellow / green colour which catches the light beautifully and glows amazingly due to the form and colour.

A Striking and unusual item that could be used as a paperweight, bookend, centrepiece or just to admire on display.

Really reminiscent of the 50's / 60's Atomic Mid-Century Modern Era using new materials with exciting new forms! Would be fantastic in a retro, vintage, or even contemporary or minimal interior due to its bold striking form and colour!

In Great Condition a few small scratches (pictured) and the usual age related wear on the base, not noticeable on display and doesn't detract from the overall look and effect.

Measures 20 x 12 x 5cm / 8 x 4.75 x 2in.

I also have a pair of paperweights available in my shop which would look great together with this piece.
