The Paperweight Collectors Association – Venezuela was formed with the primary objective of establishing a modern paperweight collection for the enjoyment of its members while fostering the divulgation of this art form in Venezuela.
It is mostly composed of works from American artists. Americana , reptilia , amphibian and traditional lampworked motifs are prevalent.
It is limited to thirty paperweights and within this constraint it is not static. The existing weights are constantly reviewed and are often sold or exchanged when superior weights are found to replace them.
Special recognition goes to Nancy Alfano, the grande dame of the paperweight world, for her kind guidance in this process
While the collection is primarily paperweight based we have also widened our interest to include millefiori portraits in marbles , canes and slices.
The Association is happy to show the collection through its web site and hopes you enjoy it as much as its members do.
