I have just joined this site primarily to find out about a load of glassware that I have just acquired.
Let me explain.
I do house and barn clearances here (in France). Normally it's just the regular junk that I may be able to sell or more likely take to the tip. Amongst the last few loads was a lot of glass - bottles, jars paperweights, etc. I think some of it might be semi valuable and some might be worth preserving for future generations. I don't know so I'm turning to you guys for any help or advice you feel you might be able to offer.
I hope you don't mind. I also hope that it isn't against Site Rules so I get booted off.
The first thing I would like to know about it a Caithness "Fireball" paperweight. Etched on the bottom is the number "H35285" (the 5 might be "S" but it looks like 5). I know it's not rare, but is it worth selling? If so, roughly how much could I ask for it? Would it be better to sell in England or France? Where can I find more information about this paperweight?
Thanks for any input on this
