Paperweight doorknob - it's bright - it's cheerful!
« on: July 06, 2005, 05:22:18 PM »
Hmm...bit worried I'm gonna be shot down by the paperweight fanciers fraternity here!   :shock:  :wink:

This was bought as 'Whitefriars', but I didn't for a moment think it was by them.  I was wondering about Strathearn - but frankly I haven't got a clue.  Perhaps it's Chinese? <confused look>   :?

At the moment, I'm trying to think of the best door to put it on (and no waggish comments like 'how about the shed door')  :lol:

Hi Max

Not Whitefriars...but your Strathearn alternative I think is spot on.
The only reason you might get shot down by the paperweight fraternity is because they didn't get to it first. A very nice piece.
ps
Perhaps another handle for your walk in safe??  :wink:  :wink:


Regards

Wow!  Its lovely Max!  Can't help you with identifying it, but happy to join your posse against anyone making disparaging remarks about which door to put it on :mrgreen:  :twisted:

It is Strathearn, swap you for a Perthshire doorknob with a much nicer brass base.  :)  :D  :lol: Joke

I only have 3 Vasart or Strathearn and the rest of the doors have PP's waiting for affordable V's and S's.

Max - it's one of the most cheerful Strathearn doorknobs I've seen.

But ... do you have curtains to match it  :?:

Thanks for all your very kind replies.  I'm such a dunce at paperweights, I really feel like I'm blundering in the dark with them.  I simply don't trust my own judgement.   :?  :shock:  :oops:  

It's rather annoying that I only have one of these doorknobs, as I'd quite like to have them on every door (husband says 'NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!').  I'll have to choose carefully in that case, won't I?

Oh #@(&, did I put it into Scandi? Remind me never to moderate after midnight... Thanks, Nic.
