Mayflower Paperweight

"No vessel, neither the 'Santa Maria', nor the 'Constitution', most noted and glorious of all the warships of the United States, can compare in romantic interest and patriotic reverence with the properly accorded fame of the 'Mayflower'. Her name is indissolubly linked with the fundamentals of American democratic institutions. She was the wave-rocked cradle of our liberties." Culver, 'The Book of Old Ships'. The Mayflower was a name common with English ships. If we suppose that the Pilgrim's 'Mayflower' was "of London" then we must also suppose that she was an old vessel in 1620 and further that she had served in the anti-Armada fleet of 1588. The Hawthorne blossom has been considered the insignia for the 'Mayflower' and 'Mayflower II'. Today a replica 'Mayflower II' can be seen in Plymouth Harbor, Massachusetts.-

Mayflower Paperweight is a cast pewter model of the Mayflower set in a crystal sea over a satin finished pewter sky on top of a silver mirror inside Victorian crystal and our finely crafted traditional pewter base as "Desk Jewelry by Charles Hill". Richard D. Warner photograph.
