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.

Peter continued making making high quality glass paperweights in his own glass studio PMcD Glass Studio Ltd. in Crieff, Scotland until early 2012.  The studio is now closed but Peter plans to continue to make a limited number of paperweights in the future.  I am pleased to be able to offer this selection of PMcD paperweights.

5536 Peter McDougall (PMcD) Miniature Millefiori Paperweight.   circa 2002-2012.  This paperweight consists four concentric circles of millefiori around a central group of millefiori canes.  Although it is not a true concentric, it gives the appearance of a concentric because the pattern is so regular.  The ground is a rich cobalt blue.  It is signed in the design with a complex cane made from four separate letter canes forming the signature PMcD.  The signature cane is distorted (as shown in the close-up).  It does not have a paper label. 

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. 

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