Manufacturer: PARABELLE GLASS ART, - Lewis, Oregon, USA. Parabelle Glass began production in 1981 as the brainchild of Gary Scrutton. By all accounts, Gary Scrutton is an ingenious and talented artisan who masters whatever he puts his mind to. When he set his mind to paperweights, he did it all from scratch – from melting his own glass and designing his own molds to creating his own colors. His best weights, such as this, are some of the finest ever made, comparing favorably to the best Classical French weights. There are common weights available, but the serious collector will rarely see a weight of this quality, workmanship and rarity.
