Futagami - Paper Weight Square
Walnut-sized brass paperweights with a crude casting surface, which fit comfortably in your hands. As all faces are parallel, you can easily hold it between the tips of your first two fingers.
The IHADA paperweights gradually change its colour over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
