Hi Tzenka

As you say a microscopic image !

With only this to go on - I think the one on the left is a John Deacons crown and - less sure - the one on the right is a Murano crown - better pictures will DEFINITELY help !

Best regards

Derek

Actually the one on the right is a Peter McDougall G14. It has a five petaled flower at top. I have one like it with a different colour scheme.
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Here is a better picture (thanks to my helpful husband who resized it). I was pretty sure that the one on the right is Peter McDougall, but I couldn't identify the one on the left. Any thoughts would help!

Hi Tzenka

Thats better !! agreed right hand one is PMcD and confirmed
that the left hand one is John Deacons.
They are both based in Crieff.

Thanks Derek! If you have the time to look at my other three paperweights (separate posting), could you please let me know what you think?
