This answer was rated:

FOR RAREWARES ONLY:This paperweight is 4.25 inches long, 2.75 inches wide, and about an inch tall. It weighs 12.5 ounces.I think it's made of glass. It certainly isn't lucite or plastic. There is a paper -- which you can see from the bottom of the weight -- at the bottom which has on it the advertisement which is magnified from the top.Can you tell me anything about it?

This is a circa 1910 glass advertising paperweight

for marine paints. CA Woolsey of New Jersey has been in business since 1853

and still makes marine paints. It was common for businesses to give these paperweights

away as promotional items from 1905 to 1920 with ads or photos encased in the rectangular glass.

This one has great graphics and is valued at $40 retail.
