Description - World Paperweights by Robert G. Hall

Lampworked and millifiori paperweights have become recognized as little works of art, because their intricate designs challenge the most accomplished glassblowers to be inventive and in full control of molten colored glass. Successful pieces are beautiful and intriguing, displaying the best skills in the glass field. Included are company histories and detailed descriptions of nearly 500 of these amazing paperweights produced over the last 150 years. Chinese copies from the 1930s and the latest fakes and copies are shown, which every collector should know about. The authoritative text includes new information that will fascinate collectors, and many rare and exceptional paperweights appear here that have never before been published. Pricing information and a detailed glossary are included. This important book belongs on the bookshelf of all paperweight enthusiasts, and will particularly appeal to all who are interested in glass production.
