For generations, people have loved and collected paperweights.
Peering into a glass-covered image whether historical in nature or an artful inspiration magnifies its significance for the beholder.
Measuring 3.5 inches in diameter with a protective felt covering on the back and resting in a clear plastic gift box, this glass collectible depicts an archival image of the former Auburn Automobile Company production workers as they inspect an Auburn automobile ready to roll off the line.
The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is now housed in this same facility and celebrates the automotive history made in Auburn, Indiana.
The museum is a National Historic Landmark, a distinction shared by only a select few historical sites in the United States.
This collectible glass paperweight commemorates the fascinating automotive history made at the Auburn Automobile Facility from the 1900s through the late 1930s.
