This paperweight is made from the kind of
wire used by John A. Roebling Son’s for structures such as the Brooklyn
Bridge. There are 7 larger strands of
wire with 6 of them twisted around the center one. Each large strand consists of approximately
19 smaller strands. The wire has a
handle shaped into the top and is bound together at the bottom with a bronze
colored ring. The ring is well marked
“Forged From Roebling Rope”. The paper weight
is in excellent condition, heavy, and has a nice patina.
We are selling our collection of Roebling
memorabilia so please see our other items this week and in the upcoming weeks.
