I took a glass block, like those found in numerous windows of bathrooms from cities far and wide, and added a chalkboard painted face so that the buyer can personalize it. I've shown one use, as a bank, but this item can be used as a vase, a knick knack holder, or anything you can think of. Measures 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" and is 3" thick. This weighs a couple of pounds easily and is very substantial. Money is not included :-) . You're only limited by your imagination as to what you use this for. U.S.
