Their best weights are some of the finest ever made, comparing favorably to the best classical French paperweights. Most designs were produced in limited editions of 10 to 25 paperweights, although some editions were larger. They also made some one of a kind paperweights.Doris passed away in 2013 and Gary followed in 2014. After the Scruttons retired in 1998, their daughter Julie Scrutton Lewis made some paperweights and jewelry using Parabelle millefiori canes. Very Large Size : 3 1/2" diameter by 2 1/2" high.
