Where did paperweights come from?
Historically, a paperweight’s function was to prevent paperwork from blowing away, however in more recent times paperweights are sought after for a very different reason. Engraved paperweights for business, crafted from fine crystal glass are now widely produced, collected by many and appreciated as exquisite works of art – they are even exhibited in museums as examples of fine glass art. These paperweights first began to be produced, especially in France, in about 1845. Their popularity started to diminish though, and the rise in popularity began to rise again in the middle of the twentieth century.
