Paul St. Clair
« on: June 30, 2012, 02:13:37 AM »
I have a glass paperweight with a pen holder on the top.  It is stamped 'Paul St Clair' on the bottom.  I have looked on the web but cannot find anything about it.  Does anyone have any info or site where I can go to see it's history and value.  It was my father's and he said that Paul made it for him.

Paul was a member of the St. Clair family of glass makers from Elwood, Indiana.

Hi msweasel

Welcome to the board - we are a very friendly lot so no need to worry!

There is an excellent little booklet called "The story of St Clair Glass" author
Jane Ann Rice who was one of Paul's sisters. This  tells the story of the 
St Clair family with plenty of archive pictures including three of Paul.

In the original booklet the glass was photographed in colour. This version is
very hard to find. However there is a photocopied version which occasionally
appears on E-bay with all B&W photos.

There are also many references to St Clair glass in Jean Melvins book "American
glass paperweights and their makers" This is out of print but a quick search on
abebooks dot com showed   35 copies available worldwide.

Hope this helps

Best regards

Derek

You can get a little bit of info here as well.

A paperweight with Pauls' stamp is the more difficult to find.  Pauls work was typically not on the same level as the others (Joe, Bob, and Ed) but because his name is somewhat difficult to find it does put a little bit of a premium on his pieces.
