Nousaku Gold Animal Paperweight

Brass pig paperweight made by Japanese metal artisans


Why We Love This

When the day gets hectic, we lock eyes with this little friend, in brass with a mirror finish. According to the Chinese zodiac, pigs are symbols of wealth, prosperity, sincerity and patience. In Germany, they are considered good luck. So when we need a boost, we love this reminder of better things to come.


Designed by Mitsumasa Kokubo for master Japanese metalworkers, these brass animals can reside solo on a desk or table or congregate as a pack of all five. Left alone, the finish will deepen and darken to a patina. Prefer the shine? They each come with a polishing cloth to restore the original look. They remind us of their animal qualities from across a room or in our hands. These little creatures are more than just paperweightsóthey provide a moment of respite and inspiration in everyday life.
