Paperweights that were made in Scotland from 1835 to the present are a wonderful part of glass history.
In this beautiful book, Scottish paperweights are displayed in nearly 400 full-color photographs together with a discussion of the major weight-makers and glass houses.
The important Ysart Family is thoroughly presented along with other makers: Holyrood Flint Glass Works, Vasart, Strathearn Ltd, Perthshire, Caithness, Edinburgh Crystal, Harland, John Deacons, Crieff, MacIntosh Glass, William and Willie Manson.
Fakes, copies, and reproductions are fully discussed and the text includes a substantial glossary of weight-making terms and a price guide.
