This lavishly illustrated book is an indispensable guide for collectors of Royal Crown Derby paperweights. However, because RCD issue so many new paperweights and different colourways of existing ones, any book would become out of date as soon as it was published. This book came out in 2002, and so there are literally hundreds of paperweights that aren't included.

However, it has a beautiful illustration of each paperweight, and gives details of the design, the dates of issue, the launch price, and a secondary value guide, which can be taken with a pinch of salt, given that it is now 4 years old. To gain a true picture of current secondary values you'd do better to study the prices that the paperweights fetch on eBay, where there are always hundreds up for bids.

That said until the publishers come up with a new edition, this is the best published guide available to collectors, and I wouldn't be without mine, and if you collect RCD paperweights you really need to have a copy.

A little disappointing. The content and photos are excellent with original release dates, price and current price. But it’s not comprehensive by any means with a lot missing. Not much meat to it at all. The worst bit is that it has an index (great) but the index does not point to the page number its referring to ! About as useful as a chocolate fire guard ! The other bit is the seller has been far too greedy on the price. The cover has a price printed at around £16 the seller asked for around £68. At that price I was expecting a nice big book full of details and content, what I got is a tiddly little glossary with a few nice photos.

This is very useful up to about 2002 however many paperweights have been issued since and some retired. The values for secondary market are also out dated but this is to be expected.

I would not be without it

Book arrived on time and in perfect condition. I would recommend this book to any collector of Crown Derby Paperweights. I also give the reader an indication of price.
