Monika Flemming and Peter Pommerencke have both collected paperweights for more than twenty-five years. Since 1976, they have run Germany’s first, and for some time, only paperweight dealership. Their worldwide contact with all the manufacturers and artists and their intensive exchange of experience with fellow dealers on an international level have made them experts whose advice is valued by beginner and connoisseur alike.
