A mini weight
« on: December 07, 2005, 10:23:09 AM »
Another new weight arrived today.  It's very small!   :shock:  Measures approx. 4cm in diameter.  

I had no idea what I was getting with this one as the photo was very unclear, but the colours looked interesting, so I took a chance  :roll:  :lol:

This is what I got: http://tinypic.com/ibgyhk.jpg  http://tinypic.com/ibgykp.jpg  http://tinypic.com/ibgylf.jpg  

So can anyone tell me exactly what I have got?  :?  The orange and turquoise look a bit Strathern-ey to me, but that's not my area, so I'm prepared to be completely wrong!  :roll:  :lol:

First guess from top view ... Strathearn
Second guess from side view ... Vasart
Third guess from base view ... early Vasart ('46 to '55)

A shortwave UV test would confirm if it's early or later.

Thanks, Kevin! :D  I'll bring it along to a PCC meeting next year and you can get under a table with it so you can test it with your UV light, if you would be so kind  :lol:

Kevin, I don't think I ever did bring this weight to a PCC meeting for you to see  :oops:  :roll:

Will you have your UV light at the Paperweight Exhibition at Olympia on Saturday 11th?  If so I could just pop this little chap in my pocket  :wink:

Unfortunately there are no facilities for using the UV light at Olympia.
