Heavy enough to stop a door (or flatten your pickles)
Pound is a doorstop or paperweight that was inspired by traditional Japanese pickling stones. Picking stones have to be heavy enough to hold down a pickling barrel's lid. We're certainly a fan of a good pickle, but in reality ours is destined to hold a door open here at The Sea Ranch, Placewares' home on the 'breezy' Sonoma Coast.
The Pound's surface is a smooth granite stone with a rope hand strap.
Each Pound stone is unique and one-of-a-kind. Made in Kagawa, Japan.
