I hope someday they will get wise and open a glass museum. Peter McDougall is making some jaw dropping weights right now. Whenever I can scratch the cash together I buy me one because I'm pretty sure the day is coming soon where I will no longer be able to afford him. You can bet your shorts McDougall will be in museums one of these days.

I would love to visit the museum LH Selman has in Santa Cruz California.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

And Willy Manson!  And John D!  And Allan Scott!  :shock:  

I'd love to go to Selman's Gallery when I'm in California in February  :shock:  but I think it's a bit too far from San Diego (where I shall hopefully be busy with my new granddaughter!  :wink: )

Under construction, requires contributions from the collecting community. Images, articles, press promotion etc. Financial help would be useful too, allowing faster construction as well as conversion of some Scottish archives.

Allan Scott is new to me. I just looked at some pictures of his work. Very, very nice!

I have a few Deacons and Manson weights. I started collecting Scottish glass when I saw some pictures of Perthshire. The absolute perfection of their pieces just captured me. I had acquired a nice little collection by the time they closed on my birthday. What a rotten birthday present!

It's been in the last couple of years that I've branched out and started collecting other Scottish makers. I'm very interested in obtaining some of the Deacons/Manson collaborations.

I'm still a real sucker for all that delicate canework and lace in McDougall's weights. Every few months I get me another one.

Not my scene at all, but there are McDougall door-handles etc currently being offered through eBay, from a German seller, also JD and others, if it is of interest.
