Pethshire paperweight
« on: October 06, 2007, 03:46:43 PM »
Well I know what this is because it has it's label and box. Iy also has a limited edition certificate. 1990 and this is number 222. What I would like to know is were they all limited or not?
Thanks in advance.

Does the certificate give a PP number?  Normally it identifies which design it is.

Perthshire weights were not always limited - this one is: it's a PP127. Unfortunately "the book" (guide by Mahoney & McClanahan) only states the fact it's limited - not the number.
There is also a version PP127A with a top and 6 side facets.

And it is not on Scotland's Glass, where 1989 and 1990 catalogues are unavailable  ;)

Super Pat, but do you have a bigger one  :o Scotlands glass uses 600 pixels longest side  :)

Not all editions were sold out but getting the actual amount made is a bit difficult. Another oddity of PPs limited editions were that they could be offered on alternate coloured grounds but the edition size referred to the total, not background colour. PP did make unlimited editions too.
