Hi,
I recently purchased a number of paperweights and need some help trying to identify some of them. Most of them have signature canes so they have been fairly easy to figure out but the unmarked ones I'm stumped on.
Any information appreciated.
Mary
The first one is 3"H x 3 1/2" diameter, the top and bottom are flat but  curve in from the edge.

I've split off the 2nd post to a new topic, we prefer one item per topic please, that way folks don't get muddled in discussions. :)

This looks like a Saint Louis 1990 Upright Bouquet with a Gingham Basket Overlay.  It should have a SL1990 signature cane in the center of one of the flowers.

Thanks for lead Allan!  I checked out St Louis and the flowers weren't the same, so using your keywords I was able to find this one is a Perthshire Special Edition from 1983, only 20 made.

Of course, you are correct.  Yours is not an upright bouquet.  I was thinking of the 1994 St. Louis Eclosion which has similar flowers but not the overlay.  I've never seen that Perthshire weight before but see that one sold in the LH Selman Auction 38 (Lot 277).  Great find.

HI Mary

Nice piece.  Perthshire only made 20 of these, as you say:  you have one and I have one.  ;D
