Two Strathearn Paperweights
« on: October 05, 2005, 10:39:35 PM »
Hi all

Bought a spotless muslin or lace ground Strathearn paperweight with ten canes or stones perfectly placed – they are lovely I know them well but one, it’s the multi coloured stone made up from lots of tiny canes – who might have made this – 3” diameter with black Strathearn label to base which is ground totally flat and polished

Also bought a 2” diameter star weight, is this Strathearn, seems it may be a Perthshire to me

Any help – here are pics

1st

I never saw Ysart sites updated section with Strathearn paperweights :oops:

Really good job - I see my lace as a P21 Large lace - no size but I guess as all my others have been 3" diam

No special S cane - but that stone is unusual - it sticks out against the others in it's complexity - ah well



Know a little bit more - ahh and as in the site my weight has 11 not 10 canes  :roll:  :oops:

It was done earlier this year with lots of Help from Richard, Kevin and a couple of others. Glassware is next for a workover... once the archive has been added.

More "Scattered Millefiori on Lace" weights can be seen in Richard More's site at: http://strathearn.smugmug.com/

From Richard's superb collection it is clear that this design was produced from 1967 to 1978 and came in sizes up to almost 4 inch diameter.

As for the "unusual" cane in your weight, Adam, I am not sure about this. There are certainly a number of canes in Strathearn items that are formed from bundles of varying smaller canes. So far, I have not identified any of the ones I have seen as being "Vasart" or "Ysart Brothers" (or even earlier!). But that's not to say they aren't. And I suppose some could even be pre-Strathearn canes enclosed in a coloured sleeve during the Strathearn years.

Thanks

Frank and Kev for info, am looking forward to seeing how that part of the site builds, if I get anything really unusual in, I will try and get good pics and send

Kev - thanks on info ref weight, I always look for an interesting cane or 'stone' in these weights - it can mean a real jump in price when selling, not cos I emphasise it, people are just attracted more to that unusual cane than all 'known' simple canes in pink and blue - no doubt more info on how they got there will come out later, I have a few like this, but most are all more common scattered canes

like this

I may sell new one, but I do like it as it is flawless without wreathing ( :shock: ) - maybe I will keep who knows

Since I have joined this board I have become more a collector than dealer - mmmm - it's not the money it's the space!!!
