Peter McDougall Paperweights for Sale


Peter McDougall started his glassmaking 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.

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.
