This is a beautiful old paperweight. is what it says on the box:

Standard Oil Company


Annual Meeting of Stockholders

MAY 28, 1958

The paperweight is 3-1/2" wide, 2-1/4" high, and 3/4" thick. It weighs 5oz.

T is a little vial of oil and a rock embedded in the lucite with the description: " OIL AND ROCK ARE BOTH OVER 300 YEARS OLD ". Also written in the lucite is: " CRUDE OIL AND RESERVOIR ROCK FROM IMPERIAL OIL'S LEDUC FIELD, ALBERTA, CANADA "

This paperweight is new in box. T are NO scratches on any part of it. The box shows signs of wear, one end flap is almost torn off, and the box has some age stains. T is also an information sheet inside. It has been folded for 50 years, but is in great shape. I will also include a book of matches with the "ESSO" logo on it.

On this coming May 28th, that shareholders meeting will have been exactly 50 years ago.

This paperweight will be a great addition to any ESSO / EXXON / Standard Oil collection, as well as any other paperweight collection.
