Description

Czech Bohemian multi-faceted clear cut glass crystal paperweight with multi-colored confetti base and sulphide portrait of Tomas G. Masaryk, Czechoslovakia's much admired founding father.

Masaryk was born in 1850 and died in 1937. In 1915 Masaryk claimed independence for Czechoslovakia. He is considered the father of the country and in 1920 was its first president.

While the photo portrait in this unique paperweight is from the late 1800's, this style of multi-faceted cut glass sulfide paperweight was made in Czechoslovakia from around 1918-1938 and was probably made to celebrate his presidency.

It is in wonderful condition for its age with a few surface scratches on bottom and a few bubble inclusions. There is tiny 1/8" chip in the bottom edge tucked under the front, barely visible when set upright.

Measures 4 3/4" tall x 3 3/4" diameter. weighs 2 lbs, 11 oz.
