Showing the Perthshire signature cane in the centre, consisting of a P.  The ambition of this glassworks was to make the highest quality of paperweights to rival the best 19th century French paperweights. There is no doubt the the quality acheived at Perthshire Paperweights was superb.

Perthshire Paperweights was a glassworks set up in Crieff, Scotland, by Stuart Drysdale in 1968. Stuart had been the manager of Vasart Glass and continued as manager when that company became Strathearn Glass. He left Strathearn in 1968 to form a new glassworks which would only make high-quality paperweights. Stuart took with him John Deacons, Jack Allan and Peter McDougall from Strathearn Glass. Jack Allan, who had been Salvador Ysart's last apprentice at Vasart Glass, was the master glassmaker; and the company recruited and trained a skilled local team who did indeed make consistently high quality paperweights.
