      Comments about UncommonGoods A Hole Paperweight:

      I had purchased another product before and loved the idea that it was recycled metal and the creator, Fred Conlon, does a great job with the materials and design. Might want to consider some soft backing so it can sit on the desk and not create a situation where it could scratch a wood surface.

          This delightfully subtle paper weight caused passer-byes to do a double take ... and then collapse in laughter. Not a good idea if boss has thin skin. :-))
