Welcome to weights-n-things,
Thanks for visiting my site; I hope that - while browsing- you will find something that appeals to you.
I try to offer a wide variety of quality antique and modern glass paperweights in all price ranges.
As a member of the
Paperweight Collectors Circle (PCC), (and currently editor of the club's Newsletter)
& Northern Paperweight Society (NPS) - in England -
and as a member and registered dealer of the
Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc (PCA) - in America -
I regularly attend the meetings and events organized by the 2 clubs in the U.K. and the biennial PCA Convention in the U.S.
During the time I lived in Germany, I hosted a number of European meetings with paperweight artists -
for example Jim Brown, Danny Salazar, Cathy Richardson, Mike Hunter, Damon MacNaught and Gordon Smith.
weights-n-things published the English version of Classic Paperweights from Silesia/Bohemia,
the standard reference book on Silesian and Bohemian paperweights, written by the late German author Peter von Brackel.
weights-n-things has been a regular exhibitor at the National Glass Fair held at the Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham.
Occasionally I also exhibit at other Antique & Collectors Fairs in the UK.
Use the links provided here to check the relevant websites for details about becoming a member of the various paperweight organisations
and to find dates for the Glass Fairs
For nearly 20 years my aim has been to meet established collectors and, hopefully, encourage new ones!
I’m always on the look-out for new stock to offer on the website...or for that “elusive” weight a collector might be looking for!
If you are searching for a particular paperweight, have any questions or would like to have a damaged weight re-polished, do contact me and I’ll do my best to assist you.
Please bookmark this site and check back regularly.
The Archive pages provide an overview of the broad range of interesting paperweights that have been sold by weights-n-things.
