to a world of paperweights

The two paperweight categories on this website are:

Antique Paperweights:

paperweights from the classic period (ca. 1845-1865) & the post-classic period (1870s-1920s)

Modern Paperweights:

paperweights from the 1930s to the present day

The categories 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 or which cannot be attributed with certainty to a particular glassworks or country
