This is an attractive vintage paperweight made by John Deacons.  

It was made in the late 1970s by the glass maestro, Deacons. It has a "J" cane and comes in its original presentation box - with the initial "J" embossed in the top right-hand corner. 

The paperweight is in excellent condition. The J Cane is placed in the central rosette in the base. It comes with its original box (rare survivor) with a white silk lining and a dark blue / black exterior on the box. The box lid has two flaps which fold out, as photographed. 

It has a pink-coloured ground with polished cushion cut & polished facets for viewing the paperweight interior around the sides. The interior decoration is a simple pink rosette a little like a snowflake. There is a central rosette form encircled by six lacy and intricate rosettes made of the tiniest millefiori canes in pink and white lampwork. 

There are a total of 6 six circular polished side facets. 

The paperweight measures just over 2 3/4 inches in diameter and 2 inches in height. In excellent vintage condition with no damages. 

Unpacked this paperweight in its box weighs 560 grams. 

HISTORYDeacons Glass is a family-run studio still situated in Crieff, Scotland. The town has a long history of art glass manufacturing starting over 50 years ago in 1964 with Strathearn Glass, followed by Perthshire paperweights in 1968, J Glass in 1978 and finally Deacons Glass in 1980.  John started as an apprentice with Strathearn Glass in 1967 but within a year was asked by the manager Stuart Drysdale to join his Perthshire Paperweights start-up team. It was here that John gained a thorough grounding in all aspects of running a glass studio.

After 10 years at Perthshire Paperweights, wished for more freedom to experiment with some of his own ideas. He left to set up his own studio - which he called J Glass (Jay Glass). The name came from "J" canes found in antique Bohemian paperweights that were a source of inspiration for John.

Allan Scott, the lampworker, joined John shortly afterwards and together they explored what could be achieved with paperweights. J Glass was highly successful and expanded rapidly until the economic crash in 1980 which forced its closure. Please also see my J (Jay) Glass weight by Scott - also for sale in my store. 

J Cane paperweights are much sought after by specialist collectors - and this is reflected in my asking price for this lovely and highly skilled weight. The J Studio was not in operation for long and as such not so many weights now survive. It is also not so common to find them in their original boxes. 

It will be £4.95 to post to you with UK Royal Mail - for a recorded service. This will be applied to your order at the checkout.
