I have in my possession a 1980 Dartington "Dodo" paperweight, but it is out of the ordinary in that it is etched on the bottom with "No. 1". (I believe they were issued as a limited edition of 5,000 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the extinction of the poor bird).
I have been offered £50 for it by a family member but I'm rather nervous about either over (or under!) charging them.
I know Dartington paperweights don't usually tend to make more than £10, but is it any different for the most desirable numbered?
Does anyone have experience of other low numbered Dartington paperweights exchanging hands and their respective values? I know there were other limited edition paperweights issued by Dartington in the late 1970s and early 1980s which may act as a good comparison.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
