Glass Paperweights / Re: HELP! Made in Scotland Label Identification!
« Last post by KevinH on Yesterday at 10:53:57 PM »
I had not added a comment for this one - and I kept forgetting to do so.

I think the Op (gcnscr) should use the link Sue provided for the Scottish Borders Art Glass site and ask about both the label and the weight.

I do not know which company made this weight and I do not recognise the canes. However, Perthshire Paperweights certainly made a 6-row concentric millefiori in the PP4 range for the years 1993/4. And the setting of the canes is of the precision that I tend to associate with Perthsihre Paperweights - and that is not the same as saying that I think other makers did not make top quality items. A point that gioes against the PP4 idea is that those weights from 93/4 were not faceted.

Hello Kerrie,

Now I am at home again and have looked in my books.
Your bowl is in the book Schwedishe Glasmanufakturen 1915-1960 on page 429.
Your bowl can be a very early work 1935-36, the highest number thoose year were T 73.
I put in some pictures for you.

Queensbury, at the time, was about the highest you could get to, in terms of creative arts. His support was the icing on the cake. :)
Good to hear he had all that support ...didn't know ! Great too he persuaded the Boffos to join them .The fab. four ...with Eric Dobson ! Between them they really created some wondeful glass in that time of confidence and hope !!
