Does anyone collect paperweights? I feel this may be a fruitful field to venture into as it is particularly obscure and rather obsessive, reminding me of Sir John Soane. King Farouk, Eva Peron, and Oscar Wilde were well-known collectors. One of King Farouk's pieces, the Pantin Silkworm, sold for $143,000 in the '80s.
