Birdcage (Paperweight) On Ebay


Recommended Posts

The price is not targeted at the paperweight community. The paperweight hobby is much older than the marble hobby, serious collecting started in the late 1800s. There are not a lot of paperweights worth $8000+, and all those are 1840s-1860s French manufacturers.

Chinese "aquarium" paperweights from the 1930s are not even recognized as collectible paperweights by most paperweight enthusiasts. They routinely sell in the $25-$40 range. Admittedly a bird cage Chinese is harder to find than other "aquariums", but you are not going to get much interest from paperweight collectors for it.

Whoever listed this is aware of birdcage marbles and is basing the price on the one sold by Morphy a few years ago.
