My new Allan Scott paperweight
« on: August 30, 2005, 08:50:25 AM »
After prompting form Ray, here's a couple of pics of my new Allan Scott 'one-off' paperweight, purchased at the Woking Glass Fair yesterday  :D
It's called 'Hanging Basket' and it's actually a double layer of lamp work!

Just look at the detail in the latticcino 'chains'!     :shock:  :D

Very very pretty Leni, it's really feminine.   :D   Is it scored underneath to make that diamond design?  Anyway, I certainly hope you're going to put it out of Lyras way!   :wink:  xx

Yes, I know it's not your style, Max - *I* do the 'pink & frilly' in the LG's  :lol:

Yes, the base is cut underneath in a diamond pattern.  I've emailed Allan about the weight and I'm hoping he will get back to me with all the info on who did what, when & where!  :oops:   :roll:

This one's definitely going in my cabinet, safe from marauding cats!   :twisted:  But I've been shopping and bought some 'White-Tac' now, so I just need a marathon session of going round the house fastening everything down!  :lol:

You're just trying to make me feel worse about not getting to Scotland, aren't you?   :x  :(

That's very kind of you, Ray  :D

The problem is, it's at least twice as far for me to get to where you live in Cumbria as it is for you to get to Scotland!   :(  

I *will* get to Scotland one day!  :shock: :roll:
