Whilst we are still looking at early fragments here is my contribution. All recovered from some dredgings on the river Waveney in Suffolk a couple of years ago. I did find a few common codds and gingers but all the early bottles were broken. – Angus Rae – Bottle Diggers and Collectors

We went on the quest ( a 200 mile round trip drive) and acquired this Prussian Blue demijohn today. Its about 20 inches tall. The third picture on the top right and the fourth picture on the bottom left capture the true color. – Dale Santos


TAKE A LOOK AT THIS COLLECTION. Normally, we’d post the entire Blog, but this photograph of an actual paperweight collection is in an online advertisement for a real estate agent. The agent had a client whose uncle collected paperweights. So the agent posted an image of the client’s uncle’s collection in a Blog ad. The agent writes a little bit about the paperweights and is impressed with the value of some of the pieces advising that people might want to do some research if they’ve got some paperweights sitting around their homes. As for the collection, it’s quite good, and the manner in which the client’s uncle displays them is interesting. – Glass Paperweight Group
