Hi Hillary,
a second installment about paperweights made in WV. These pics are of paperweights made by Robert L. Hamon of Hamon Glass in Scott Depot WV. Bob was recognized around the world for his art glass creations including marbles and paperweights. As you can see, he made paperweights in many different styles and shapes.
Price curently ranges widely. The ones shown can be found from $100 to $200. The Presidential Series Paperweights sold for about $400 each when they were first offered by Hamon Glass. Thanks

Can someone explain to me the process of making a paper weight?
Is the flower plastic?
Are any of you glass blowers?
