Old advertising method that is new to me.
On ebay right now is this glass paperweight that was a method of advertising that I have not seen before. The paragraph below is written on ebay regarding the item. Perhaps someone will know its location and whether it still stands.
This is a vintage, clear glass paperweight featuring a church and probably its pastor, and the writing at the bottom edge reads, 'M.E. Church South Beebe White Co., Ark. Rev. Franklin B. Noe D'. The writing cuts off at the "D" and I can't make out the rest. This is about 4x2&1/2. I don't see any chips, but there are several surface scratches that you can only see at certain angles. The original backing is intact. Overall, it's in very good condition, and displays well.
