This is a lovely large Scottish glass paperweight which stands 2 1/2 inches high, measures 2 1/2 inches at the base and weighs 506 grams. This paperweight was made by Strathearn Glass and it is an SP100 paperweight made between 1979 - 1980. In 1979 Strathearn Glass designed a new range of three millefiori paperweights - the SP Series - the last paperweights produced by Strathearn Glass which closed in 1980.
This new range of SP paperweights was to be limited to 500 pieces in each design but how many were actually made is not known.. This paperweight has a design of four concentric millefiori rings of canes surrounding a complex centre cane all set on a black flat cut polished base. This is a very well made paperweight with very detailed canes. The condition is good - there are no splits, cracks, dents "dings", damage or repairs to be found but for accuracy in my description I will point out several light surface scratches to the flat cut polished base only but nothing too serious or detracts in any way. (Please excuse any photo flashes or reflections).This lovely large Strathearn Glass SP100 paperweight made only between 1979 - 1980 just before the factory closed, and with such an attractive concentric millefiori design, would make an ideal gift or a great addition to any collection.
