English paperweights for sale

'Old English' paperweights were made between 1845 and 1950 by several factories in the Birmingham and Stourbridge areas, including Richardson, Walsh Walsh, Arculus, Bacchus and Islington. There is no evidence that millefiori paperweights were made elsewhere in the UK in the 19th century, although there are several groups of Old English paperweights whose makers are as yet unknown.

There are no 'antique Whitefriars' paperweights: that is a mid 20th century error in attribution of Walsh Walsh and Arculus pieces containing '1848' date canes: these were actually made in the 1920s - 1930s. Most Whitefriars paperweights were made between 1950 and 1980.

On this page are a selection of Old English and Whitefriars paperweights.
