WWI Stone Book Paperweight 1915

Greenish brown marble paperweight in the form of a book with rounded spine and corners. Top shows carving of 2 clasping hands (1 obviously a woman's sleeve, the other a man's sleeve with a chevron) coming from different directions with flowing ribbon above. Inscription below reads "W IS MY BOY TONIGHT." The front edge has the 1915 date as well carved texture to mimic pages as well as the top and bottom edges. Reverse shows a wreathed cross over "JESUS WEPT." Also shows floral leaf carving within the border. T are many small chips around the edges but non very large. Measures 4 1/2" long by 3" wide and 3/4" thick and weighs about 11 oz.

Probably English or Commonwealth from early in the War. An interesting and emotionally heavy piece.
