Victor Trabucco first experimented with making paperweights in 1977, fascinated by the idea of encasing delicate lampwork arrangements in solid crystal. In 1984, his twin sons David and Jon - who had grown up watching their father create his floral designs - began to produce their own paperweights. Today all three are considered to be among the most creative glass artists in the world. Earlier weights generally contained a “VT” signature cane - David and Jon used a “T” cane - but they have now discontinued this practice and today’s paperweights are dated and scratch-signed "Trabucco" above the basal rim.
