Wedgewood plaque paperweights
« on: March 25, 2006, 01:00:50 PM »
Martin Taylor, who is a well known and respected paperweight collector and stalwart of the Northern Paperweight Society has been collecting Wedgewood plaque paperweights for some time (with help from me and others).

We now believe that he has them all (He acquired Nelson last week).  It is only a belief because  it seems that there is no definitive  list. He has made enquiries with Wedgewood and others and no records are available.

I will get him to post the information when he has collated it. It would be useful if any other members had any additional information.

However in the meantime, members should be aware of this addition to the canon of paperweight knowledge.
