Those simpler millefiori weights that John Deacons produces help pay for the time he spends on the really special weights. And he is making some really fabulous ones. I have not a few of the bread and butter weights but I also have a couple really special ones. He's a very fine artist that I have come to appreciate more in the last couple of years.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

I have to confess that all this talk of John Deacons is making me want one of his weights...and I don't even collect paperweights!  One will have to go on the 'Want One of Those' list now.   :D

Max,
This could get expensive.  Do not look at 190114874375 or at 320116631108 by using the ebay search tabs at the top of the page.  You have been warned  >:D  >:D

Hmm...although I (http://tcwozere.co.uk/smileys/bowdown.gif) to Mr Deacons, those particular two don't inspire me...I want something that moves me, something that causes me to burst into song and brings joy to my cerebellum.  :D

I'll keep looking.  Sooner or later a paperweight, maybe a Deacons one,  is going to totally ding my bell, and that'll be it.  I'll actually buy an expensive one.   :o

Hmmm, probably excellent going by the name but such a tiny picture really devalues it. Anyway Max it is NOT Scottish ;)

$1500?!  Good grief!  (or as they say in Scotland 'Good Crieff!')   That is a lovely weight, and the lizard is superb!  There's too much choice in paperweights.  For a novice collector, it's hard to know where to start.  I do hanker after a lizard (as Kev knows) though.   :-[
