thanks for the replies - that just makes it a little sweeter  :D

And as this makes the ninth  perfume bottle in my collection of glass  - I guess I'm hooked on those too!
4 Caithness ones , 4 by an Aussie called Michael Hook, which I think are gorgeous - see  one example pic below, and now an IOW one. Guess I will be looking out for more of those too

Rose - I ordered the Mdina book direct from Mark Hills publishing - seemed to be the only place with it available - it was out of stock everywhere else I looked

Thanks again everyone.

Silly question (Maybe)  Did this company make any PW at all?  Just curious....

Hi Rose, IOWSG have made paperweights from the earliest days in the 1970s and are still made today: I'm not really into PWs so you won't find many pictures on my web site.

It cost me (including postage) $45 (Aus) which is about £25 I think at present
Thanks JAK

JAK, Definitely a bargain! I'd be prepared to pay 50% more for your PB and not feel cheated. IOWSG prices have really zoomed up in the last couple of years because of the publicity Mark's book has given. It was the reason why I started collecting IOW (I collect French (D'Avesn, Etling, Verlys), German (WMF) and English (Jobling) Art Deco too).

And I collect the bits I love.  :thup:
PWs are made in all the different ranges of the Collections too - scroll down on each page to see them in each design.
