Identifying Perthshire paperweights
« on: August 27, 2017, 07:51:43 PM »
I was wondering if anyone could help me identify some Perthshire paperweights. My grandfather had an extensive paperweight collection and we're trying to figure out what we have.

If you have a lot of Perthshire paperweights to ID, I recommend you find a copy of the book on Perthshire.  The Complete Guide to Perthshire Paperweights by Colin Mahoney, Gary McClanahan, Marge McClanahan & Debby Mahoney.  Make sure you are buying the book published in 1997.  There is a later version published in 2015 that mostly covers the later years and not the earlier ones.  Amazon listings are very messed up and it is hard to tell what you are buying, so be careful.

Thank you for the quick reply!
It's just these 4 left that my grandfather didn't have information written down about. We have his book from 1997, and think we have identified 3 (but we're not positive) and are having a tough time identifying the 4th. Any hints for how to better use the book or identify the 4th?

Your images a rather small - difficult to say for sure - but your best bet is a PP221 from the annual collection 2000 - which is why you won't find it in the first of the books (published 1997). Check https://www.weights-n-things.com/archive/modern-paperweights/europe/perthshire-pp-range/1973-pp221-2000-ed-100.html for comparison.
