An engraved paperweight with the famous SS Great Britain passenger steamship. Approx. 4 inches (90 mm) wide in diameter.
SS Great Britain was an advanced passenger steamship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York. While other ships had previously been built of iron or equipped with a screw propeller, Great Britain was the first to combine these features in a large ocean-going ship.
