Fiestaware paperweight pattern.
« on: July 25, 2010, 02:53:20 PM »
David Encill discusses six known distinctive patterns - and so when I saw this it occurred to me that I might have a seventh.   However, I guess that as these are hand cut there are going to be minor deviations from the standard designs.   This one is noticeably different, but probably just a variation on one of the existing weights.    Grateful for anyone's opinion and thanks for looking.

I think yours is the same pattern as middle row right hand side in the picture posted here, Paul: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,4104.0.html

Yes I agree. I still haven't seen one of these 'in the flesh'...

thank you Anne.      I do have the book, so have seen pictures of all six, and would agree with you that mine does come closest to the the pattern you have indicated - which was my thinking as well.     I wasn't sure whether in fact every one (within each individual design) would be identical, or not.     Guess there are probably a number of minor differences for some of the patterns, and therefore I haven't found a seventh unknown design. ;D    This is the first one I have found.

They were hand-cut so there will be subtle differences between the weights, giving it the appearance if a slightly different pattern.

 :P Are you being a tease, Christine?

David, I have one of these, boxed with the Gold Chance Fiesta label on the box. In it, the 6 points of the star-shape reach the inside rim under the weight, so there are no roundish space-y bits on the outside. I had it with me at the Chance Exhibition you put on in Dulwich - did you not see it then? Or did it get lost and forgotten and buried under everything else that was there?

You are most welcome to have it, if you'd like it (for the price of a donation to Acorns!  >:D)
Cheers, Sue (M)

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

No, it's in the link Anne gave (and now residing in Australia)

Hmm, can't say I saw it at Dulwich - but then again, Denis organised the display for 27 shelves and there were only 18, so plenty of items didn't get displayed!

I'll mail you privately about this 'weight.

I think Christine's "seventh" one does resemble the one top-left in the promotion card. The edges are slightly different, but the hand-cutting might have been responsible for the different appearance. Hard to say without comparing it.

No it was definitely different because I had the top left one as well.
