Tiffany Studios New York "Turtleback" Tile Paperweight
A perfect desk accessory, this Tiffany Studios New York "Turtleback" tile paperweight, features a single golden-hued and finely textured "Turtleback" glass tile set in bronze as a weighty form of solidified sunshine, captured in the form of glass. The ethereal glow cast off by the undulating surface of the single, large tile when struck by light softens the sumptuous weight of the glass, creating a complex composition from a single form.
