The Excalibur Paperweight and Letter Opener was designed by legendary Steuben artist James Houston in 1963.
Here, Excalibur is formed by solid sterling silver featuring a hilt wrapped in 18 karat gold, resting in a faceted crystal paperweight representing the stone from which King Arthur pulled the famed sword in ancient legend.
Houston’s work for Steuben typically combines the company’s famed highly refractive crystal with precious metals, including gold and sterling silver.
