Cast pewter paperweight
Cast pewter paperweight "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop." 2" square. Made in USA. Vilmain + Klinger. $28 from Worldesigns Incorporated through Ebay, Feb., '01.
As the Ebay advertisement says, this solid cast pewter paperweight is elegant and handsome. It is also heavy! I presume that they found this proverbial moral attached to the Lion and the Mouse.
