Vintage Crimped Rose Paperweight For Sale

Vintage Crimped Rose Paperweight

There’s an interesting story that goes along with this paperweight…

My aunt is a visiting nurse for the elderly in south jersey. A few years back she took care of a man by the name Sam Benson who also lived in the Pittsgrove Township of southern New Jersey. His wife sparked his interest with glass which obviously led to him collecting paperweights. After his wife passed is when my aunt began caring for him. During that time he gave my aunt various things of his including this paperweight I have listed. He told my aunt that a good friend gave it to him. Apparently this friend of his was Paul Stankard- I learned throughout my research that Stankard is considered the father of the modern paperweight. Stankard and Benson met while both attending Salem community college- located in s. jersey.

Now, unfortunately Benson has since passed away so the information we have is obviously limited. The paperweight is unsigned- It looks very similar to St. Clares crimped rose paperweight. It has a few air bubbles- A larger one which is located on one of the out side petals. It has four leaves and 16 petals (4 layers- 4 petals on each layer) It weight about 2.2lbs.

I did some research and learned that the technique used to make the crimped rose was developed by glass workers in s. jersey- specifically Milville NJ, which is minutes from where Benson resided.

My knowledge of paperweights are slim to none but please message me with any questions- I’m sure my aunt will be able to give me more information if needed. I will email more photos if needed.


EDIT: I spoke with with someone from Wheaton Glass in NJ and they told me that this is indeed a Millville Rose
