Well, Cat, trying to pin down which company made some of these lovely weights is "clear as mud"
for at least some of us! :spls: After reading the comments and taking a look at my very early Perthshires, I believe your weight to be late Strathearn. My reasoning is as follows:
1. Canes have a broader look to them than what I see in the weights above mentioned.
2. The yellow dot in the center of each of the pink canes encircling the center cane looks to be like a dab of color rather than recessed and/or appearing-to-stand-free of its cogs.
3. The overall look does not have that crisp look I have come to associate with Perthshire weights.
4. I do have a translucent ground on a Vasart/Strathhearn but not on my early Perthshires which all have matte grounds. (Thanks, SophieB!)
Forgive my lack of proper terminology in my effort to explain why I believe your pretty weight to be Strathearn. I must also add I am stepping out on a limb. If someone else offers more accurate reasoning the other way, then I (we all) will have learned something. And, that's truly the most important reason for this Board.
My very best .... Lily
Would the center cane be of any assistance in determining who the artist/company is? I can't make out the design, can you?
