Colours are a bit odd, perhaps just the pics. Did anyone else use red aventurine?

Hi Alan and Frank

The pontil mark show the typical Ysart radiating scratches. The weight is a
very similar design to the one shown in Bob Halls "Scottish paperweights" book P 31

I think it is OK but didn't want to be quoted on that.

Since it's in Canada, I might not bid on this unsigned Paul Ysart butterfly. ;D
