Japanese decorative calligraphy paperweights (bunchin - pronounced "boon-chin"). Made of solid iron, these beautifully crafted and often whimsical decorations are actually calligraphic paperweights for holding the parchment steady while the calligrapher wields the brush.

These delightful conversation pieces grace home or office with a solid and quality presence. Both compact and weighty, a Japanese bunchin paperweight is the ideal objet dユart for adorning that empty space and filling it with individuality and character.Ranging from 6cm to 16.5cm in size, at least one of the five varieties offered here is sure you capture your fancy.

Choose from a whale, a dolphin, an eggplant (aubergine), a cucumber, or a traditional festive Japanese long-nosed oni devil mask. Or buy the whole set, with a discount.
