Heritage Glass Paperweight – Silhouette, ‘A gift for you’ c. 1916



Handmade by Canberra Glassworks, these paperweights were commissioned by the Duldig Studio in 2021.  The featured image is turned into a decal and fired onto the rear surface of the glass. The glass itself is made by ladling molten glass into a graphite mould. Each one is hand-made and therefore you may see slight difference in thickness, the occasional small bubble or tool mark.
