..to a world of paperweights

The two paperweight categories on this website are: 

Antique Paperweights - covering the classic period - considered to be ca. 1845-1865 - and the post-classic period ca. 1870-1930.
Modern Paperweights - including weights made from ca. 1930 to the present day.
They are set out according to continent, country or region and list the main glasshouses, studios or artists in alphabetical order.
Both categories contain a Miscellaneous section for those paperweights for which there is no dedicated group
