Peter McDougall (PMcD) Small Paneled Millefiori Paperweight
3186 Peter McDougall Medium Ribbed Millefiori Paperweight. This paperweight consists four concentric circles of millefiori around a central millefiori cane.  Although it is not a true concentric, it gives the appearance of a concentric because the pattern is so regular.  The ground is black.  It is signed in the design with a complex cane made from four separate letter canes forming the signature PMcD (as shown in the close-up). 

This is often called a pressed weight because a mold is used to form the outside ribbing.  The top is flattened.  The ribbing gives the glass a real glittery appearance as you can see in the picture.

3122 Large Peter McDougall Millefiori Paperweight Pin or Candy Dish With Gold Cross and Garland.  Colorful pin dish or candy dish with a cross of gold complex stardust millefiori canes and an outer garland of simple blue and white canes.  The design is set on a translucent cobalt blue ground.  It is signed with a paper label "PMcD Glass Studio LTD, Hand Made in Crieff Scotland." 

Scottish makers have a history of making candy dishes and other shapes out of paperweights when they realize that the product is flawed in some way.  I suspect that they also make these dishes to order.  In this case, I can see no flaws.  A paperweight of this design was originally made by Perthshire exclusively for L.H. Selman, Ltd., so it is possible Peter continued to make the design for Selman after Perthshire closed.

Spectacular Peter McDougall (PMcD) Large Closepack Millefiori Paperweight
3966 Rare Peter McDougall (PMcD) Miniature Eight Pointed Star Scramble Millefiori Paperweight.  This miniature paperweight features a scramble or end of the day design and is finished as a eight pointed star.  The ground is black.  It is signed in the design with a complex cane made from four separate letter canes forming the signature PMcD (as shown in the close-up).  It also has a paper label "PMcD Glass Studio LTD, Hand Made in Crieff Scotland." I am calling this a rare example because it was not part of Peter McDougall's standard offering.  He had a six pointed star that was similar and a small scramble finished as a round paperweight, but I could not find this eight pointed star in his offerings. 

This is called a pressed weight because a mold is used to form the shape.  The top is flattened. 

Although many people collect scramble paperweights for their own merit, scrambles are also valuable tools for learning to identify the different colors and canes used by each factory.

Peter McDougall started his glass making career as an apprentice at Strathearn Glass in Crieff, Scotland back in the 1960s.  When Perthshire was formed in 1968, he left Strathearn to move to Perthshire and worked there in many positions, eventually becoming Manager and Chief Glassmaker.   Perthshire Paperweights closed early in 2002 after the death of the owner Neil Drysdale.  Peter McDougall then made high quality glass paperweights at his own glass studio, PMcD Glass Studio Ltd. in Crieff, Scotland from 2002 until early 2012.  The studio is now closed but Peter plans to continue to make a limited number of paperweights in the future.

Miniature Size:  Just over 2" diameter by 1 3/16" high. 
Condition:  Outstanding condition with no scratches, chips or cracks. 
Signature:  Signed with a complex cane in the design and it also has a paper label "PMcD Glass Studio LTD, Hand Made in Crieff Scotland."
