Strathearn or Perthshire`? Please help ID!
« on: March 21, 2009, 12:07:48 AM »
I have got that nice weight about 1 year ago.
I am also beginner in PWTs. :hiclp:
After "The complete guide" it is a PP2!
But: why does it looks like Strathearn?
Is there any definitely reason to be PP2 and not Strathearn???
Regards,

It looks like Strathearn because that's what most of the first of Perthshire Paperweights items were based on. The folk who first worked at Perthshire Paperweights just stopped working at Strathearn and started working at PP - with basically the same methods and with some of the same canes.
