Production of American paperweights in the classic period in the 19th Century, got underway in the early 1850s, a few years after they had become "fashionable" in Europe. Initially, the designs tended to copy imported styles. However within a few years, Boston & Sandwich (B&S), the New England Glass Co. (NEGC) - and, later, during the 1860s - Gillinder, were creating some fine, highly-collectable weights. The rare - and highly sought after - paperweights attributed to the Mount Washington Glass Works are believed to have been produced in the 1880/90s
