Baby Jellyfish Paperweight
Beautiful Swimmer. Did you know that jellyfish are the oldest multi-organ animal on the planet? Our mesmerizing Baby Jellyfish Paperweight should last many human lifetimes. Simultaneously handmade by two glassblowers skillfully working with molten recycled glass, this coral medusa shows off its species’ bioluminescence by glowing blue in the dark. Item is made entirely of glass. 4"h. x 3"dia.
Celebrate aquatic beauty while honoring the need for its preservation. Inspired by the majestic bounty of the sea, these carefully chosen gifts call to mind the breathtaking interactive experience offered by our Sant Ocean Hall, National Museum of Natural History, as well as the spectacular clothing and amazing jewelry and glass in our collections at our National Museum of American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
