A very special, detailed paperweight from the Pingyao region, dated around 1930/1940.
This wooden paperweight is finely carved: a bundle of bamboo tied together with a string. Three spiders crawl on the bamboo, as a symbol for bringing happiness and prosperity. This object was used as paperweight or purely as a decorative object for contemplation or consideration.

Nice and soft patina from use.
