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."
