Paperweight, Red Tape

SKU E9247

A truly unique and interesting souvenir for anyone who has ever had to deal with the government bureaucracy!

Here, encased in a block of clear acrylic, is a piece of the original red twill tape once used to bind U.S. Government Documents. To have access to a document, you would have to "cut through the red tape"-- hence the idiom...

This strip was taken from documents accessioned by the staff of the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Kansas. The paperweight measures 4-1/2" x 3-1/8" x 7-1/8" and comes with instructions for its care.


Your purchase supports the education and exhibit programs of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.
