Perthshire Paperweights
« on: November 06, 2012, 04:27:16 PM »
I don't usually dabble in paperweights, but I would have been silly to bypass these ten PP weights, with original display sign.

I've been told that they should date to the late 1960s / early 1970s, coming from a defunct shop that closed around then, but I've literally no idea. Every design bears the same label.

Sorry, bit of transposition there with the dates - late 80s / early 90s is what it should have read.

Nice to get such a group with the retailers sign.... any papers with them?

Aye, there's nothing terribly exciting in amongst them. No paperwork for them, sadly - although there was a box for a ltd. edition S. Drysdale paperweight from 1987... but no paperweight!

If you need photos of any of the weights, or one of the sign, for Scotland's Glass then let me know and I can forward some higher-res images once I figure out how to light them damned things without getting glare.

In a bowl of water for the top shots - but then the labels...

Oh, excellent tip. The labels should survive as long as it's just a quick plunge and I dab them dry.
