A very special, and lovely, way to remember your mother, Pat.

Pat that is a cracking resource, and very nicely put together as well.  Well done to you and yours, and thanks for sharing a personal memorial with us.

Thank you for your comments about my mother...but read again.  It's my brother's friend's mother.  My brother is gay and has been with his partner for 20 some years.  So she would have been his "mother in law" and he loved her very much. 

That said, thank you for all the advice, and links.  I will check out the board you mentioned.  Hope I didn't shock anyone. ;)

Much love from Virginia...

I'm scratching my head, but I have heard of Lee Wynkoop's collection before. I believe some of her weights were listed on Ebay. This was a while ago.

Here's what I can identify in her unknown section:

Fratelli Toso:

http://www.leewynkoopcollection.com/page284.html

I'm pretty sure these two are italian also but I do not know the maker:

http://www.leewynkoopcollection.com/page288.html

These have Fratelli Toso canes but I'm not sure of the actual maker. Might be Chinese.

Chinese:

Glass Eye Studios:

She had a very nice collection. That website is a very nice memorial to her.

Don't give up hope on getting that Perthshire. I've seen some go for as little as 20 dollars. Just keep bookmarking them and watching and you'll get one.

Collecting what you like is the way to get a satisfying collection. That's the philosophy I always followed.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
