Whitefriars paperweight, 1978 help with id please
« on: June 14, 2007, 10:16:25 PM »
Hi please can anyone tell me the proper name for this weight. It has the wf date cane and the monk, photo's very hard to get right. Does anyone know how rare it is or is it common. It is dated 1978.
Thanks

Whitefriars many of these cylinder weights and although they were the same shape and size the cutting/facetting was different on certain editions.
Value I guess would be around £160 or thereabouts

I believe this is the site where I identified the shape of my faceted 1978 paperweight.
