by Dorothy H. Jenkins
Magazine Issue:  Woman's Day, July 1965

Woman's Day published a series of inserts on various collectibles.  This eight page insert in full color was a pivitol article in the history of paperweight collecting. 

A copy of the magazine article was given to Stuart Drysdale when he was managing Strathearn Glass in Scotland.  The article the inspired him to improve the quality of the glass paperweights made there and eventually to leave Strathearn and found Perthshire paperweights.
