Purple Thistle Paperweight


Not only a symbol of military conquest as it has come to be known in Scottish legends and heraldry - the thistle can be also be seen in another light - soft and textured - as photographed by Karl Blossfelt. 

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.
