Vintage Paperweights
Gallery #2

"Paperweights are commonly made from glass, although may also be made from clear acrylic or other materials. They are often collected
as examples of fine workmanship, and appreciated for their aesthetic as opposed to their utilitarian aspect. They are often exhibited in art museums
as examples of fine glass art.... Antique paperweights were made primarily in three French factories, between 1845 and 1860,
in Baccarat, St. Louis, and Clichy. Weights (mainly of lesser quality) were also made in the United States, Great Britain, and elsewhere,
though Bacchus (UK) and New England Glass Company (USA) produced some that equaled the best of the French. Modern weights have been
made from about 1950 to the present.

There are approximately 20,000 paperweight collectors worldwide. Several collectors associations hold national or regional conventions,
and sponsor activities such as tours, lectures, and auctions." Read More
