Paperweight Collection


Paperweight Collection

Harriet N. Smith '45 was an avid collector of glass paperweights and a devoted Laurentian. Through her estate plan, she arranged for her collection to be given to St. Lawrence with instructions that the collection be sold and the proceeds used to fund the Delaware County, New York Scholarship Endowment. The collection will be sold by Christie's New York. Christie's describes it thus:

A Collection of Fine Antique Glass Paperweights from the Harriet Smith Living Trust including (from left) a Clichy pink rose on white latticinio weight, mid-19th century; a Saint Louis white double clematis on aventurine ground weight, mid-19th century; a Saint Louis hollow white rose weight, mid-19th century.
