The Morton D. Barker Paperweight Collection
Over the course of twenty years, Morton D. Barker (1888-1967) of Springfield, Illinois, amassed a large and prestigious collection of paperweights, most of which were created in post-Napoleonic era France. Highlights from this stunning collection have been reinstalled in new cases designed by Joe Hennessy and built by Paul Countryman of the ISM staff.
