Add To Wishlist


Add a classic touch to your desk with this elegant glass paperweight, inspired by the oculus windows of the Texas State Capitol. The original design of the Capitol included a structure known as a roof lantern on the north wing, outfitted with 24 cobalt-blue oculus windows etched with a snowflake-like pattern. Inspired by designs from antiquity, the oculi (Latin for "eye") infuse the space with a shimmering blue light, which can be spotted by the public only through a skylight on the Capitol's fourth floor. During the Capitol restoration in the 1980s, six of the original oculi were reinstalled along with eighteen replicas. The design reflects the Renaissance Revival style of the period.
