Italian Leather and Wood Zodiac Signs Dodecahedron Paperweight

About

A rare Italian dodecahedron paperweight with the 12 signs of the Zodiac prominently displayed. The astrological signs are beautifully illustrated and the writing appears to be in Latin or Italian; each picture is a well crafted celestial interpretation of its "Zodiac Sign". They look to be transfers on a red leather (or leatherette) that covers a wooden base, and brass tacks are added for protection when sitting on any surface. The word 'dodecahedron' comes from the Greek words dodeca (twelve) and hedron (faces); ie, a shape that has 12 sides. A dodecahedron is a 3-dimensional figure made up of 12 faces or flat sides; all of the faces are pentagons of the same size. The paperweight is in excellent vintage condition. Measured around its girth it is 12 inches. As it sits on a table, 3-1/2 inches tall. Weighs 11 ounces. The piece would make a wonderful gift for any one who loves antique and vintage Zodiac collectibles.
