Is that a question or a statement, Frank?

More a heads up  :) spotted it on an unrelated search and thought someone might be interested.

The seller is normally OK. I have seen a lot of his auctions and could fault him on very few.

OK  :)

I don't usually comment on live auctions but, for info:

The weight is one of a type that is usually said to be northern Bohemian, and is typical of the design with green-and-mica base (some are gold coloured instead of green) and assorted scattered millefiori. A few like this are known with a cane showing an "R" inside an outline of a crown - a mark for Riedel. So these days, the green-and-mica with scattered canes are said to be Riedel.

Nice weights, often with a good selection of fascinating canes. Another, which in 1999 was attributed simply to "Haida c1880-1910", is shown here. [The comment that Strathearn produced broadly similar weights is true, but refers to the scattered cane concept rather than the green-and-mica base!]

Here's the basic URL; maybe this will be ok for you, Lynne:
