the Paperweight Row?  Who are they?

Based in Chester, England, the Paperweight Row was established by Steve Rowe with the intention of providing a reliable, trustworthy service to all paperweight fans, from the complete novice to the veteran paperweight collector looking for that elusive weight.

We are principled sellers, but that’s not all………………………


We have large stocks & great choice  

We hold a wide variety of paperweights at all price points from £15 upwards.  

We support the Artists/Makers

Unlike some other dealers we regularly buy direct  from makers and artists in the UK and USA. Only by such support can they thrive and extend their artistry & skills  

You can see & handle our paperweights

 We are not just internet based. We have a table of our weights at NPS and PCC meetings, Glass Fairs, and at some Antique & Collectors Fairs in the UK. We can even come to see you with a selection of paperweights that you may like.

Here I am, hiding behind my lovely wife Maria, who some of you may meet at the meetings of the NPS - Northern Paperweight Society, and the Paperweight Collectors Circle (PCC)

Mike Rowe

My brother Mike helps man the table, and acts as roadie at the larger Glass and Antique Fairs. He is becoming quite addicted to Perthshires and Whitefriars. Here he is in action (or is it “inaction”)

Our principles

We are a VAT-free zone.

Please note that all prices listed are those that you will pay, Unlike some other dealers in the UK, we do not advertise a price and then add 20% Vat for UK and EU customers. Our pricing is straightforward. At present our turnover has not reached the level that requires Vat registration, therefore no Vat is added and none can be deducted for those outside the EU. When it does our advertised prices will include it.
