Perthshire Annuals

Perthshire Paperweights (1968-2002) was set up by Stuart Drysdale in Crieff, Scotland aided by some of the top Scottish glassworkers. A specially commissioned weight in 1969 was followed by the factory's first Annual Collection in 1970, which consisted of just 2 designs. From then on, a new Collection was presented every year with 4 or 5 (later 7 or 8) limited editions. Most have a "P" signature/date cane or a scratched "P". For years, Perthshire was the benchmark for paperweight making in Scotland. The last complete Annual Collection was introduced in 2001. Financial constraints forced the factory to close down in early 2002.
