A new exhibition at The Burchfield Penney Art Center on the SUNY Buffalo State campus reveals the process, precision and popularity involved in making paper weights.
Paperweights are prime examples of miniature artwork. Meticulously crafted by glass makers for centuries, a selection of paperweights that recently sold at auction — through Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates, was featured in the April 27, 2016 edition of Antique Trader.
Paperweights of all shapes, sizes and designs will take center stage during the fourth annual American Paperweight Circle, March 28.
In the latest edition of Ask the Experts, Dr. G. Marchelos provides answers to questions about drip pans, belt buckles and paperweights.
The first forum for people interested in American-made paperweights, old and new, is March 31, 2012, at the Museum of American Glass in West Virginia.
