Blue Cornflower Paperweight
German (indulgent) romantics like Goethe saw the cornflower, or more generally named Blaue Blume as a symbol for what is unobtainable in the subjects of love, desire, hope and beauty.
Coincidently in France, Bleuets de France - the French cornflower - are worn on people's lapels, as are the poppies in Britain - on November 11th to remember those who faught in the trenches during WWI.
Regardless of any symbolism, the care and patience put forward to make this seemless and crystal clear paperweight is magical and makes a beautiful object for any desk.
