Hi.  This was a Limited Edition piece from1996.  The bad news is that Caithness made over 3 million paperweights, and that lots are on the market at present. So prices (which we do not really discuss on this Board) are quite depressed - often to a small fraction of the original issue price. Your best way to check current value would be to see if any have been on eBay recently, and whether they sold - and if so, at what price. In general terms, no more than 20% of issue price seems to be typical  - but there are exceptions.
