No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

Can anyone identify these paperweights?

Hi, my partner has just started collecting paperweights and I wondered if anyone knew who they were by?

Thanks

This one looks like it has a piece slightly out of the bottom.

This one has a rough pontil on the bottom:

This one has a smooth pontil and is more pinky than the picture.

I'd say first one Chinese, second possibly Indian, and third possibly Murano.
