Perthshire - anything special?
« on: November 25, 2011, 03:27:25 PM »

To me, this Perthshire paperweight looks to be a run of the mill PP2. Am I missing something, or is the seller just very, very optimistic?

It appears that such optimism is spreading to this side of the lake!!

I agree that the Perthshire is overpriced and optimistic. 

But I don't think the price for the Delmo Tarsitano paperweight is unreasonable.  The design was priced at $8,500 when it was exhibited in the Winter Garden Exhibit at the Alexander Gallery on Madison Avenue in New York City in 1984.  It is called Dragonfly in a Strawberry Patch.

Regards,

Allan

Thank you Allan.  I agree that it is a very attractive weight, I've just never seen a Delmo Tarsitano weight in that price range before.  I stand corrected.

Of course, you can always make an offer and get it for less. :)

Good gravy. Still keeping my Perthshires.

That Tarsitano is amazing.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
