Charity shop or something better???
« on: October 13, 2005, 08:45:12 AM »
Found these in a box when clearing out Mums bungalow yesterday and since I know little about P/W's I could do with an opinion before they head off to the charity shop in case they deserve better.

The white flower has had a label to the base

And the following two have a Japanese look to them

I know all 4 weights are over 40 years old since my mother has had them at least that long so any help please.

Hi Paul,

The two flower weights are probably 'Chinese' - although the label on the white one could possibly have been a Murano one, but the weight was probably still 'Chinese'  :roll:   :lol:

These go for between 99p and £6 on ebay - I collect them myself! (will make you an offer for the white one if you're interested :wink: )

However, the other two are genuine Chinese white base 'antique' weights, and generally fetch £30 +  and have been going even higher just lately.  Very collectable!  I wouldn't take them to the charity shop!   :shock:

Aaaah, that's very sweet of you!   :D

I'll be looking on ebay for the Chinese white weights, too, but probably can't afford them!   :roll:

Hi Paul, I'm glad you had a nice holiday - re: your other post a while ago!

I've got the same pink weight as you, and I have your white weight (a Chinese boxing term?  :lol: ) in yellow too, it's really pretty.   :D  :D

Erm...that's it really, just saying 'hello' to you!  :D

Hi Max
Shouldn't that Chinese weight be in yerrow though. Holiday was great but nightmare this week clearing the bungalow, just got home and found some more weights in the loft so I'll stick them on tomorrow for ideas. Just don't know where half this stuff came from as I don't remember ever seeing it growing up.
