Alan - Walsh Walsh
« on: June 24, 2008, 11:05:13 PM »
Hi, I just got this item in today - 220245778614 - indeed Walsh Walsh.
I matched several canes to WW weights and canes in Bob's OE book.


Interesting but badly damaged, there's no rescuing it as far as repolishing goes.

Very nice clear glass with crisp colors.

Small for an oe weight, 2"3/4 ( 7 cm) across, just over 1" ( a tad less than 3 cm) tall.

Pontil ground and polished.

It shall live next to my other interesting but damaged OE's  :)

Hi Alexander

I saw it but decided not to bid! I agree:  Walsh Walsh or Arculus (I'm not sure it is possible to say which is which with some of these, although tradition has it the poorer quality are Arculus).  Walsh Walsh bought the Arculus factory and kept on making weights there, so are they Arculus or Walsh Walsh......?
