Up to Par

Sometimes there's nothing to do but play it as it lies. When the workday's tough, this clever desktop paperweight is an amusing reminder that there's no obstacle that can't be overcome. The Sand Trap Paperweight handcrafted in Seattle contains a colorful assortment of tees, a real golf ball, and of course, sand -- everything one would expect to find in those pesky sand traps!

The bright white and rich spring green of the handmade art-glass globe are a nod to the white flags and golf balls dotting the course's perfectly manicured grass. This miniature sand trap makes a great gift for golf-loving dads and bosses! As an added interesting fact, all products from this studio contain ash from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption. Handmade in Seattle, WA

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sand Trap Paperweight:

    I was really excited when I saw this beautiful glass paperweight. My husband is a golfer, collects paperweights and is very hard to buy for. I love glass items like this. Everything about this would be great... The painted glass, real sand inside, golf ball, golf tee... Everything except, there is no way possible to keep it in place (inside) or even get it into the nice display as pictured. It would be perfect if it could somehow have just been anchored, the golf ball to the tee and the tee to the base of the glass allowing everything else to be free moving. That would have allowed me to give 5 stars, purchase more and not be disappointed. What a shame, I really liked it otherwise.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Very fast shipping. Excellent customer service.

              The tees were not as colorful on the one I received as the internet image. My tees and markers were all white - the one on website had red and blue which was more fun in contrast with sand. Still very neat gift!
