Today I found these two glass paper weights that have the U.S. House of Representatives seal on it at the thrift store with the signature Frank Horton. I looked him up and he was a representative from NY born in Texas in 1919 and died 2004 . A month earlier at the same thrift store I bought this Signed Lenox jar with the same U.S. House of Representatives Seal on it!!
