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.
Thank you very much!

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.
