Well, to be honest Frank... the paperweight is downstairs, and I am upstairs, and I am guessing  ::)

Like you (aka I) do....

But it is quite deep, much more than 1mm... I'll go and wash out the talc and measure it and report back.

I think I may be thinkiing of Mtarfa, but I don't know if they ever used an impressed mark rather than a label  ???

Brilliant, I found one the same shape as mine and as it was almost certainly bought by the ex's Mother who used to live in Yorkshire that makes sense  :hug:

I tell you Christine, I knew I had seen it somewhere... but could I think where??

I am so pleased that this little weight can come off the "maybe one day I'll know who the heck you are" shelf.
