What is being offered now is a Perthshire Glass paperweight still in what I believe is the original box. The paperweight is made with a bed of bright milifiore colors and a center of lacy white with the train decoration on the center of the bed. The center of the top has a cut and polished bevel in the center which highlights the locomotive. It is marked on the bottom with a P for Perthshire milifiore piece. It also still has the label on it from Perthshire Paperweights in Crief Scotland.As you can see in the picture, the paperweight stands a little over 1 1/2 inches tall, and this weight also weighs between 1 and 2 pounds. This beautiful piece of glass has no cracks or chips, the shiny places are reflected lighting.
I worked at Boyd Crystal Art Glass in Cambridge for a number of years. I was employed there from about 1979 to 1987.
For those of you that came to the Boyd Glass factory in that time period, I was the tall, thin, moustache faced, 20-something year old that worked in the factory. If you took the "tour", I was probably the employee that explained the glass process to you while you watched us work. I truly enjoyed my time with the Boyd's.
The time I spent at Boyd Glass is a memorable time in my life that I will not forget. I have a lot of older Boyd pieces, and some of the newer ones. I will be putting them on as I unpack them from the boxes I stored them in, or take them off the shelves in our home, find them at sales or get them at the Boyd factory. They will not be in any particular order.These will all be first quality Boyd Glass, with no cracks or chips, and will make a great addition to any collection. We send it by either method.
