Hi addg

She's on the  case - young lawyer neighbour couldn't help - but his girlfriend can.  So passed on photographic instructions and just now waiting to see.

Cripes! I hope the pictures will not be too much of a disappointment.  For me this is a lump of glass that I've kicked around as a kid and not bothered that much about.  I've not looked into paperweights - it might be guff.   :-\

However I shall post piccies as soon as I get 'em.

ps Scotland did OK in the footie tonight

If you have not read the thread Andy mentions please do....maybe I have a warped sense of humour but I thought it quite funny....and with that this post gets BUMPED to the top again  ;D

Hi,
Returning to the Brasso basket. My wife has three in her glass collection, of differing colours.
Over the last ten years I have seen several at antique centres in Scotland, prices generally £60 to £90. They do seem to sell quite quickly.
yours aye,
Alastair

Still on the case - sorry that this is a bit of a 'wait'.  Next doors girlfriend isn't able to del;iver (typical wimmin') so I'm chasing my younger bro' to take some picks.  I shall not fail.  You shall see pics of said p'weight.  I shall also quiz my mum on some of her cousins - as some worked in the glassworks at Crieff and Perth (Strathearn?) and others at Caithness Glass.

Gentlemen (and Ladies?) of this Board I have news.  My brother has taken pictures of the paperweight of interest.  Unfortunately they are too big to Email so he's sticking them on a CD and sending them to me.  I will report back here with further news when I have the CD then we can decide what to do with the pictures.

HHDB,
Thats great news!  If you have a look under the board's index there is a "sticky" about how to post pics, it refers to a programme called IrfanView that you can use to shrink the pictures to be able to post them here.  IMHO it is also a very handy programme to have in any case!
Kind regards,
Karel

Or you can email to me, and I can get them up.
