welcome aboard! This is the place to be for fun and information. If you have a paperweight you want to know about post a picture and ask a question. I would not have said I was a paperweight collector since I love all glass, but imagine my surprise when I counted and discovered I had over 40 paperweights :shock: Many of them I do know who made them, but a few I don't and in the coming days may post them here. So jump right in and again welcome Terry in Iowa

Hi "dickinks", welcome.

With such a long experience of collecting weights it would be interesting to know what types / makers you have. Don't feel pressured to post anything you don't want to though.

In my case, I've only been at it for around 12 years [there's the answer to your question, Max  :) ] although I started out with coloured Victorian glass 4 years earlier. I became hooked on Scottish Ysart pieces. I also added various examples of others. I have ended up so far with about 300 weights, many of which are "just examples of their type".
