Hi Cazza i am sure the second one is a Ray Annenberg weight for Whitefriars . Regards John.

Cazza,
To me the canes in the first weight shout Murano....and then you can start choosing between all of those who in Murano made yours!
If you look at the weight from the side and the canes are all different lenths...then it basically confirms Murano.
kind regards

PS: in my opinion it would also be a recent weight 10 years odd....bt that is a gutfeel and not based on any fact!

Hi Cazza i have sold several of Rays W/F weights they can go for as little as 20£ or as much as 50£ on a good day, trouble is there are not many good days at the moment. Good luck John.

 I havnt looked yet but i know how ray made them the colours are all pieces of cane pulled and stretched and if the cut end faces outward you can see the original shape of the cane, great INIT.I hope this makes sense if not get back to me.I still have a couple of unique ones Ray made post W/Fs Yours is W/Fs.

The first paperweight is Fratelli Toso.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.
