Hi, I received this the other day, a tiny (1"1/2 or 4 cm wide, a little less than 1" or just above 2cm tall) paperweight.
I thought it would be by a Scottish maker since it originated in Scotland, but the ribbons don't really look Scottish to me.
It "feels" old. It appears to have been glued onto something as there was glue residue, the small pontil is broken off,
raised slightly so that it doesn't sit flat on an even surface. No grinding or polishing there.
The ribbon basket is partly on the outside so that I can see and feel the canes.
One cane wanted to be special and is almost completely on the surface at it's end.
The canes themselves seem very well made.
Any help greatly appreciated
