Eric Jump, Owner/Curator, The Paperweight Collection
Based in Los Angeles, California, I have been a dealer of fine antique and contemporary glass art paperweights since 2011 – specializing in the art of millefiori and miniature flamework and torchwork glass sculpture encapsulated in solid clear crystal.

Between the years 2017-2020, I served the paperweight community by promoting paperweights and publishing content as the Facebook Administrator for the national PCA. Today, I continue to serve the PCA as the Dealer Representative and member of the Board of Directors and a contributing author to the Annual Bulletin. Regionally, I am President of the Southern California Paperweight Collectors Association, where I serve various functions, including but not limited to newsletter editor and webmaster.

As a dealer, I think of myself as a guide for those on their own collecting journey. Every collector is unique, each having their preferences and are at different points in their journey. As a guide, the most important part of my job is to educate and offer advice. I enjoy showing at art & antique shows and regional paperweight collectors groups – swapping stories with seasoned collectors and sharing with newcomers. Ultimately, I strive to create lifelong relationships by offering the finest paperweights I can find suited for each step along every collector’s journey.
