If you wish to order this book, please e-mail Allan Port at:
Sotheby's "Important Paperweights from the Collection of F. Regnault and Frances C.D. Fairchild (New York, June 16, 1999)"

Fabulous catalog from Sotheby's recent sale.
This sale included 167 paperweights in 111 paperweight lots plus six lots of paperweight
ephemera and a silk Hermes paperweight scarf.  There is a color picture of at least one 
paperweight from each lot.  Some paperweights are also featured in closeup detail photos.

The collection included an incredible selection of very high quality weights.  Only ten lots had modern weights, the remainder were French and American antiques (Baccarat, Clichy, St. Louis, Pantin, Boston and Sandwich, and New England Glass Company).

This is a "must-have" catalog for every paperweight collector.  The catalog is in as-new condition.  It includes the prices realized for each lot.   The highest price was $96,000 for the spectacular Clichy Moss Ground Concentric Millefiori 

This was a very strong auction with high prices for investment quality paperweights and no bargain lots.  Even the paperweight books brought strong prices.

8 1/4" by 10 3/4".  Soft bound.
