    This paperweight is 3" in diameter and 1" wide. It retains its original label. I bought a lot of three paperweights to get this one. The other two are overwhelmed by this one in terms of immediate appeal, but the other two are growing on me. One is very crudely made and has a bit of damage. If they continue to charm me, I may post them, as well, but I think they are pretty unremarkable and not marked or labeled, too boot. This is the first time I have seen this Sasaki paperweight. Not sure of the date of manufacture...

      Super lion face paperweight, and it's always nice (but not always easy) to find the orig label
