Please do not miss my many other lovely Art Glass Paperweight Auctions by various Well Known and Famous Artists.Some of this Wonderful Paperweights Fascinating HistoryThis Art Glass Paperweight is from the late William Gaskill’s Cherished Collection. Mr. Gaskill was a former President of the National Paperweight Collectors Association (PCA) and an avid and very astute Art Glass Paperweight Collector. After His passing, his collection was on loan (for approximately 3 years from 2006 to 2009) to the Museum of American Glass (Wheaton Village) in Millville, NJ, which is now known as Wheaton Village Arts and Cultural Center. Mr. Gaskills highly regarded and very extensive Art Glass Paperweight Collection was on display in their most prominent area of the Museum at that time. Just prior to being put on display at the Museum, Lawrence Selman of the Renown L.H. Selman was commissioned to do an appraisal of the entire collection. Mr. Selman is known worldwide for his expertise in the field of Art Glass Paperweights and in 2001, Selman was awarded the honor of being named by the Paperweight Collectors Association, one of the Top Ten People of the 20th Century to influence the paperweight art form. Mr. Gaskill’s collection was considered to be one of the largest gatherings of Antique American Art Glass Paperweights known to be in private hands. In 2009 a family member took possession of the entire collection and it went safely and quietly into storage for approximately 6 years, from 2009 to 2015. In 2016 I was very proud and honored to have had the opportunity to acquire a large portion of Mr. Gaskill’s Wonderful and Cherished Art Glass Paperweight Collection. Many of William’s Amazing Pieces will stay in my personal collection for safe keep, but with sadness some will be offered up for auction here on ebay over the next several months from his Fine Collection. If you’re a new collector, old collector or just would like a few original well documented paperweights for your collection please stay tuned and watch for my future Art Glass Paperweight auctions. Thank you, Kim Short History: American Glass Companies Millville, New Jersey Southern New Jersey has been called "The Cradle of American Glass" for the same reason that it could be called "The Cradle of American Asparagus Farming." There's a lot of sand in the soil, and sand (silica) is what is melted to make glass. Glass factories have been here for over 200 years, but it wasn't until the late 1960s that someone decided to call attention to it. That someone was Frank Wheaton Jr., grandson of the founder of Wheaton Industries, one of the biggest companies in glassmaking. Frank had visited the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, and was upset to see that many of its exhibits had come from southern New Jersey. So he did what only a rich person can do; he went out and bought a third glass museum, and shipped its collection here. That stuff has become the nucleus of what is now the largest museum of American glass anywhere. ABOUT ME I am first and foremost a collector of many different types of antiques.
