Jersey glass paperweight
« on: September 24, 2012, 04:35:17 PM »
Presume this is the channel isles Jersey and not the one the USA
Can find nothing at all about Jersey glass.
The label reads Handmade Glassware at Fort Regent in Jersey....
A quite well made weight so puzzled I cannot find anything.
A previous thread mentions Jersey glass and a reference in the Mark Hill book but no mention of Jersey glass in the index?

Chris a well known and rspected Australian based glass artist Nick Wirdnam operated a one man studio in Jersey in 1975.  He subsequently went to Isle of Wight qglass for the next 7 to 8 years.  You may be able to get more information if you can get a current email address off Google.

Will do Ross thank you.
Thought it an interesting weight with the label not one I have seen before?
