The last few days I have been working exclusively with images of, mostly, one-off weights by Allan Scott. There are now 163 examples of his work viewable. Mostly single images but several do have additional images.
Working with images at high magnification, up to four times larger than on the site, I kept on being impressed! Faced with so many weights in one session I was tempted to post them with only minor tweaking but as I sorted out the worst images I knew that I was looking at work of a quality that can be seen in Stankard weights. The loving attention to detail, the humorous touches, the careful choices and placing of colours - all complement with exceptional cutting and overall execution! I carefully removed all the backgrounds on even the most complex cuts and adjusted the colours when needed with an equal care.
So, do please take a long slow look at this body of work, it deserves it. One or two items have had their dates and names forgotten, some could do with additional views... so if you own any of these and can help out
