Collector's Guide to Paperweights 1840s to 2006
Identification & ValuesPaperback - 2007
Collector s Guide to Paperweights provides comprehensive price information that is long overdue, from the golden era in the mid-nineteenth century to the multitude of individual artisans working today. After the classic period in the mid-nineteenth century, paperweights virtually disappeared! In the 1970s the paperweight revival was just beginning; from the 1980s to the present, an ever-increasing number of artisans have taken up the art of paperweight-making. Paperweights encompass every possible price category in glassware from inexpensive models under $25 (Chinese floral and others made in Asia as well as some of America s small glass novelty makers Blenko, Boyd, Gibson, St. Clair, etc.) up into the thousands of dollars (antique French, Stankard, 1 on 1 s, etc.) and everything in between. The purpose of this guide is to provide practical pricing on all such categories in both Europe and America. 2007 values.
