Texas Limestone Paper Weight

Texas Limestone Paper Weight. By Phillip Hoggatt, artisan. Distributed by the Gift Shop at the San Jacinto Museum of History from the Museum’s location in La Porte, just east of Houston. 5” x 5” x 1”

Larry Spasic, the Chief Operating Officer of the Museum, recently spoke to the Harris County Historical Society, giving his usual exciting invitation to the museum. He brought with him some wonderful paper weights carved from the pitted and fossilized limestone. They used unnecessary remnants of the great monument itself. On the stone’s underside are some protective little cork spots. Larry mentioned that his samples were the last of their current batch. More would be available about March. The cost of the previous batch was about $20 or $25 each. They make excellent gifts for weighting paper or just for decorative display. I use mine to keep a book open to a page that I’m reading from while keyboarding. Mine remains cool so I also hold it to my forearms during a long writing period to cool the muscles. Give them a call to see when they’re available or to put yourself on the waiting list. 281-479-2421
