Whitefriars, surely?
« on: August 18, 2008, 01:29:21 PM »

I think this paperweight is 1950s-1960s Whitefriars, not Victorian.

Seem to remember someone telling me the 2 I had (still got 1) are 1949, sure the thread is either on here or on the whitefriars site.

Maybe sunshine.   I thought these were made at the time of the Queen's coronation in 1953 (that's why you see red white and blue examples)
