Whitefriars Day Paperweight
« on: March 19, 2007, 11:40:23 AM »
Just had to 'show off' my latest paperweight, made by Ray Annenberg with some of his few remaining Whitefriars canes for the Whitefriars Day at Aaronson Noon on Saturday 17th. March :D :clap:

The inscription reads, Made by Ray Annenberg - Aaronson Noon "Whitefriars Day" March 07
