The collecting of paperweights in another of those exploding hobbies in the field of collectibles over the past few decades, especially with the ever-growing number of independent artisans who have gained name recognition, and consequently, the premium prices that go along with the achievement of high quality detailed workmanship! Ironically, paperweights, up into the 1950s, were little more than whimsies collected by a few odd souls, albeit, wealthy ones at that. Sure, there was the early 1860s, but it was really a 1952 auction of a huge paperweight collection of Mrs. Applewaite Abbott that brought paperweights into the mainstream of collectibles in the modern world. This book introduces you to the fun of collecting paperweights, plus how paperweights are made, the origin, and identifying the different paperweights.
