Now there are some really droolsome Deacons weights on this page. Man, if I had money to burn I'd be getting one of those fuschia weights! http://www.paperweightsplus.com/phdi/p1.nsf/supppages/pwp?opendocument&part=5

Make sure you have a mop handy!
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

I'm really not sure about cute paperweights like the ducks.  Maybe they're something you get into after you've collected the more traditional patterns and need something new?  Angela had some fun paperweights at our stall at Gaydon, one with a penguin and another with...a snowman I think - I didn't like those ones either.  Ha.  For someone with virtually no paperweights, I'm very choosy, aren't I?  ::)

I look forward to seeing a bigger pic of the Ysart lizard weight.  :D

I don't know, I just think the work coming from the contemporary lampworking US makers is wonderful,

Look at this Mayuel Ward butterfly...

Hmm, not all that expensive!
The first one isnt, neither is the second, hell I havent yet bought an expensive weight!  BUT with 50 odd weights (of which I would classify about half as nice weights and about another 10 as intresting) and loads more on the "need to have" list it can get expensive ;D ;D ;D

Hi,
   Sorry,just got round to reading this thread.To put things straight on the subject of the so called Chinese Caithness imports.We have never bought in weights from anywhere including China and if there is any Chinese weights with our labels on them then they must be fakes or someone is trying to con the collectors by putting labels on cheap weights for more profit.I would be most interested to see any pictures of the weights mentioned if anyone can supply some.
