One of Frank's weights
« Reply #10 on: April 28, 2005, 03:48:22 AM »
Frank wondered how I reached a conclusion that his weight was by a female hand. Easy - it has the sort of delicacy oozing from every sinuous line of trailing that I consider is not usually found in weights from the male makers. But more than that, I thought it might have been by Siddy Langley, who set up her own workshop in the 80s and has certainly produced surface decorated weights with delicate trailing.
