Breathtaking. These paperweights are stunning examples of what great artists can accomplish with their prodigious talents in a free, open, and creative society.

Although judging from photographs only, these paperweights are as brilliant and detailed and majestic as anything the French made in the 19th-century.

Messrs. Scott and McKay are to be commended and congratulated. They continue the glorious tradition of paperweight perfection. Based on the photographs, they have set new standards and surely no one can adjudge these two glassworkers as anything but truly great paperweight craftsmen.

It is no wonder that thousands of paperweight collectors around the world gather their money and hope for a chance to purchase such ideals.

Anyone who loves paperweights should be in awe.

And don't forget Martin Murray, who does the facetting!  Just look at the base cutting on the 'Butterfly Garland'!   :shock:   :D
