Dandelion Paperweight

Admire a fleeting moment of summer any time with this hand-picked dandelion seed head preserved in resin.

$69.00 - 89.00

A Puff of Summer

Admire a fleeting moment of summer any time with this real, hand-picked dandelion seed head preserved in a perfect, crystal clear sphere. This paperweight preserves the puff in clear resin at the moment before its parachute-like seeds fly away on the wind to start the flower's life cycle over again. The resin sphere displays the seed head's extraordinary natural architecture from every angle, and the subtle optical distortion of the resin imparts a sense of movement, making this an eye-catching accent for your in-box or mantlepiece. Great for the nature-lover, gardener, or lawn-care enthusiast who wants a trophy of a vanquished foe. Handmade in the UK.

This is such a unique gift! It reminds me of my childhood -growing up in the country where lawns were not manicured and fields of countless dandelions were part of every summer. The orb is crystal clear and the dandelion head inside is huge and perfect.Glad we purchased!

I purchased the small size and was underwhelmed by the general appearance and impact of the thing. The photo here -- enhanced, I think -- shows a piece with high contrast and delicate detail. The sphere I recieved looks like a little cloud of beige. Not flawed, really, but not what I would call pretty. Just kind of blah.

                    I ordered the small-sized paperweight to give as a Christmas present to my female business partner. After receiving it, and seeing how beautiful (although small) it was, I ordered two more -- one for my daughter-in-law's birthday, and one for my book-loving outdoorsy brother's birthday, both in the larger size. I can't decide which I like better; both the small and large sizes are beautiful.

                        My sister has a collection of unique paperweights so this now has been prominently placed on her desk. It's a beautiful momento of the lazy and carefree days of summer as a child and sharing the memories of watching the dandelions dancing in the summer winds.
