Glass Paperweights / Paperweight id, please
« Last post by SNJ on July 28, 2016, 08:47:29 PM »
Any info about this pw would be appreciated. Not sure how to describe it other than multicoloured swirls - predominantly purple - in clear with random bubbles. Roughly ground out pontil and lots of wear to the 'foot'. Approx. 75mm diameter. Thanks in advance.

thanks for the links Fred  -  there is obviously a substantial catalogue volume so to speak, but most lighting wares - for obvious reasons - have not appealed to the general collector............    apart maybe from the well known Walsh 'Vesta' panels, and some Jobling pieces.
However, this thread may provide a little of interest for H. & A. products should anyone find such pieces in the future and need some information.

Businesses prefer cheap/slave labour and to be using countries which have no added expenses like health and safety regulations. More profit.
Thanks Sue! My apologies, I called you Christine in the other post.
I know. I try to avoid buying from companies that do this but it is getting harder and harder.

Thanks again Christine, I had no idea. Seems so many items are now being made off-shore.

sorry, have I been admonished? - didn't see any smileys.          Flatulence only, fortunately.

I would think Hadeland will be contracting out to a place where labour and fuel are cheaper than Norway, they'll have been made in China, not just the box.
Waterford and Caithness both contract out.

You clearly don't live with somebody who has IBS.
