Today, the celebrated glasshouse ranks among the world’s leading producers of millefiori and lampwork paperweights. They are one of a few factory-size operations in the world devoted exclusively to making paperweights and paperweight-related items.
Discover the unique artistry of this eminent glasshouse through more than 750 individual full-color photos, accompanied by informative text from leading Perthshire authorities. The Complete Guide to Perthshire Paperweights includes a comprehensive cataloque of the factory’s production from 1969 to 1997. It represents an invaluable addition to any glass reference library.”
