Jay Glass

After an apprenticeship at Strathearn Glass, John Deacons moved on to Perthshire Paperweights in 1968. Ten years later he felt the time was right to start a business of his own and he set up Jay Glass. The company made paperweights - mainly small editions limited to 101 pieces, although there were also a few special issues - from 1978 to 1983. Allan Scott was responsible for many of the lampwork designs, some of which were made exclusively for the American market. Early weights were signed with a “J” cane. Later date canes were introduced with 4 numerals in various combinations of red, blue & green. The venture closed down in 1983.
