May 3rd will mark 10 years since the Old Man fell. We have put our Old Man memorabilia ON SALE until the end of May!
This is a Gorgeous Bristol Blue Glass Paperweight engraved with New Hampshire's famous land mark, The Old Man of the Mountain. Also nicknamed "The Great Stone Face" or "Profile," The Old Man of the Mountain was located in Franconia Notch, NH. The Old Man of the Mountain was scenically set 1,200' above Profile Lake. Discovered in 1805, the rocks that made up the profile, sadly collapsed on May 3, 2003. The Old Man of the Mountain has been the State Symbol for New Hampshire and was chosen as representation for the New Hampshire Quarter. Today, The Old Man of the Mountain memorabilia is still very much sought after by collector's and folks who just want to have a piece of The Great Stone Face. We are very proud to offer this item as this paperweight was designed exclusively for us at Bristol Blue Glass, USA. This paperweight is absolutely beautiful! This would make a stunning addition to anyone's desk! This cobalt blue flat engraved paperweight is approx. 4 inches wide, but some may be wider due to the hand craftiness of each item. Please note this image can also be engraved on any other piece of blue glass as a special order. Daniel Webster once said: "Men hang out their signs indicative of their respective trades; shoemakers hang out a gigantic shoe; jewelers a monster watch, and the dentist hangs out a gold tooth; but in the mountains of New Hampshire, God Almighty has hung out a sign to show that there He makes men."
