The Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc. (PCA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to appreciating and collecting glass paperweights. For over a half century, PCA has championed the study and collecting of antique, vintage, and contemporary glass paperweights. The mission of the PCA is to promote education: to increase knowledge about paperweights, their creators, and the astounding glass medium from which they are created.

The PCA consists of a convivial group of contemporary artists, dealers, collectors, libraries, and museums from around the globe. The interest in glass paperweights is the common thread that binds the membership: many of our members are just starting out with a few paperweights while others have established collections numbering in the thousands. There is something for every collector in terms of taste and budget. It is the variety and diversity of glass paperweights that make them so interesting to collect!
