Perthshire Paperweights for Sale


Perthshire is a small company in Crieff, Scotland that was devoted to the creation of quality glass paperweights.  They stopped production in January 2002 after more than 30 years of production.  Their paperweights were consistently high in quality and yet remained reasonable in price.

The birth of Scottish paperweight making is credited to the glass making family of Salvador Ysart, who moved to Crieff, Scotland in 1922.  They worked first at John Moncrieff Ltd and made the earliest Scottish paperweights during that period.  In 1946 Salvadore and his sons Augustine and Vincent founded Ysart Brothers Glass and produced glass wares under the Vasart label.  The company name was later changed to Vasart Glass.

Stuart Drysdale was hired manage the business side of the enterprise in 1960.  The company evolved into a new company Strathearn owned by Teachers Whiskey.  In 1967 Drysdale was sent a magazine article on antique paperweights (Woman's Day, July 1965).  The inspired him to try to produce weights comparable to the French antiques.  With this goal in mind, he and several of the glass workers left Strathearn to found Perthshire in 1968.

Peter McDougall was one of the very young glass workers who left Strathearn in 1969.  When Perthshire closed in 2002 he was the head craftsman of  Perthshire.  Peter now has his own studio PMcD Glass Studio and makes paperweights under his own name.  For a selection of Peter's paperweights, see my PMcD page.

There are more Scottish paperweights and related objects on my page of Scottish Paperweights.

For more information, you can read about the Perthshire in three books:

And of course you might want to look at the Woman's Day article that inspired Stuart Drysdale to found Perthshire.  For these and other great references on paperweights, check out my list of paperweight books for sale.

If you are looking for a particular Perthshire paperweight, please let me know what you are seeking.  I now have quite a few Perthshire weights in stock, including annual collection and limited edition weights.  Many of these paperweights are pre-owned.  I try hard to give you an accurate description and will list even the tiniest scratch found.

Perthshire PP18 Paperweight Doorknob.  circa 1969-1970.  This paperweight doorknob consists a close packed design of millefiori canes over an opaque cobalt blue ground.  This is an early example and is not signed.  The brass hardware has four holes for mounting. . 

Perthshire made this doorknob from 1969 to 1978 and from 1984 to 1997.  It was part of the general line.  Only the earliest knobs were unsigned.  After the first few years, they were signed with a "P" signature cane near the center of the design. 

Interestingly, this is the only simple closepack that Perthshire made until 1997.  All of the other closepack designs had complex canes.  In 1997, I asked Peter McDougall if he would make one for me as a paperweight rather than a doorknob.  He did and they liked the result so much that they decided to put it into regular production in two sizes.  They also made a miniature closepack for in this design for the 2001 PCA Convention.

The picture does not do justice to this paperweight.  Ignore the white areas, they are glare from the lights. 

Size:  Just over 2 3/8" diameter by 3 1/8" high (including the mounting). 
Signature: Unsigned, but I guarantee that this is a Perthshire PP18 Paperweight Doorknob.
Condition:  Excellent condition with no chips or cracks.  On careful inspection, I found no scratches on the glass.  There are some light scratches on the brass base. 
Execution: Perfect execution.
