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

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
