John Deacons Special Paperweights Page 1



Photobucket




John originally started with Strathearn, moving to Perthshire on its setting up. In 1978 he left to form his own firm, J Glass, which traded until 1983 and produced many fine weights. These days John makes weights on a much smaller scale in his home studio, which helps keeps his costs down and prices competitive. Indeed, his weights are widely recognised as offering exceptional value for money.

We were delighted to have been appointed a John Deacons main dealer as there are only 7 others in the world. We rapidly became the largest John Deacons dealer in Europe, and now supply many other dealers worldwide as well as collectors.

The Deacons studio is world-renowned for innovation, and John and his team are constantly coming up with new ideas.

There's probably nothing in the way of paperweights that John isn't capable of making, and the sheer variety of styles is amazing!

If you'd like us to get John to make you a customized weight incorporating your own ideas please ask. Whilst you may have to wait a little while longer there's no extra cost.

Magnum Textured 'Tartan Twirl' Crown


This is a design that John and Craig have been working on for sometime. John is well-known for his crowns and this really is something different.

Coloured 'ribbons' are set in groups around the weight on an aqua ground and the design is completed with a large red and white Clichy style rose. A particular feature of this weight is the textured surface and also the semi-translucence when displayed with the light behind it.
