This is a rare opportunity for sophisticated paperweight collectors as well as those clients who simply love the eclectic and unusual. I am listing my personal paperweight collection. My collection reflects my philosophy of buying only the best examples available. One doesn't find "bargains" when buying highest quality of rare items. Excellent provenance enhances and increases the value of such items.
