Thanks Kev. I have learnt to practice caution when attributing anything - research does that for you.

One other difference in the example from your site, is the number of canes around the centre - 13 (mine) instead of 12, but otherwise it is very similar, as is the profile and the purple ground.

I imagine canes were used to fill the available space, and they would vary in size anyway, hence the difference.

Note to moderator - could the title be changed to reflect these findings? Thanks

Good observation, David. Absolutely right. It's the fact of having two rows of canes around the central one that is important for the design [except, of course, for Perthshire Paperweights, who in their wisdom, sometimes produced completely different designs under many of the fixed design numbers!].

Kev, there's more to 'weights than meet the eye - very interesting to understand the various technicalities.

Thanks Max, looks alright to me - enough doubt to create mystery ;D

did't JD make a strathearn range , i've seen one of his weight's which i thought was a strathearn until i looked on the base, it was signed with diamond point i think J Deacons strathearn with a date which i can't recall, but next time i'm there i will take a photo, it was priced at £125 so no chance of me buying it
cheers Ray

John Deacons and Willie Manson are currently doing a series of collaborations which they call "Strathearn series". Each piece is a limited edition of 25. They don't look like the old Strathearns at all.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
