Another copy of the signature from my site, going by the wording of the auction the seller seems to recognise it is not genuine but basically leaves it to the bidders to decide.

I suppose some people will be interested in buying is as a drawing of a signature of Paul Ysart that is also on someones paperweight. I imagine the artist had greasy, slippery fingers and used coarse emery on the base to make it easier to grip whilst signing  ;)

But seriously, can anyone identify the maker of the weight... Selkirk has been suggested...

Alum Bay had an impressed mark "AB" - sometimes very hard to see the details. They also used a paper label. I don't know whether or not some items were unmarked.

I thought we had an older mesaage where the Alum Bay (and Isle of Wight) logos were discussed and some images were inlcluded. But I can't find it. And I can't find the images I took of my weight the the AB logo + paper label - the weight is also of the "swirly" type.

Thanks Anne.

Here's three of the images now in the Glass Gallery (originals being Tinypic ones):

Alum Bay weight, the one on the right
Alum Bay label
Alum Bay "AB" logo (not too clear - you might need to stare at it for a few seconds to see the lettering!)

I saw an eagles head...

My latest Alum Bay JIP vase has no marks, but is exactly the same as one on the AB site.
