Museum Quality Paperweights

Paperweights made by North American makers who do not have separate pages on my website.

Condition is excellent – no issues.  2 1/4 inch diameter; 1 11/16 inches tall; seven ounces. $200

 
 
 

PW617. A. F. Carpenter Museum Piece. (1971). For the collector of rare and unusual American Paperweight Renaissance pieces, this is a must for your collection. This is one of the nicest snakes you will ever see in a lampworked paperweight. It is a coiled cobra on a sandy ground. The fabulous reptile is yellow, red, and black in an intricate pattern of many scales. Signed “A. F. C. 1971. Excellent condition. 2 7/16 inch diameter; 1 15/16 inches tall; 11.5 ounces.  $225

PW1074. Hugh Smith, Millville, New Jersey, USA. Hugh Smith was  a paperweight collector who decided to give it a try. He experimented in the 1960s and produced weights into the mid-1970s. He was one of the best. His weights are small and precise and remind me of a combination of Clichy in the lampwork details and Kaziun for his sparkly aventurine grounds. These do not come up often. Signature cane in the ground: “HS”. Condition is excellent – no issues.

2 5/16 inch diameter; 1 ¾ inches tall; seven ounces. $175
