Thanks very much KevH for your help... I found a 5th small weight which I will be posting on ebay tonight. From the same auction lot I also have the following pieces, & I'm stuck for IDs again! The catalogue description was 'mainly Scottish paperweights' so I'm not expecting a jackpot lot of 15 top quality paperweights, but any help attributing them would be very welcome!
These remind me of crocuses & I have a trio with Blue (shown), Purple & the third with a Dark Green colour leaf. 3 inchs diameter x 2.5 inches high.
This one has a lovely green core covered in controlled bubbles & is a shade taller & narrower than the crocus pattern
This is smaller ... 2¼" x 2¼" but quite prettyI think...
& this one has a white core with what i'd describe as pockets of trapped air against the surface rather than bubbles. 3" daimeter & 2¼" tall.
All the above have flat polished bases & seem to me to be quite good quality paperweights, but it's a new area for me so expert opinion most welcomed!!
This doesn't seem to have quite the quality of the others - 2" x 2". Also a smaller version 1¼" x 1¼".
Last for now (still got 3 or 4 to photograph & identify!) I have a large paperweight engraved on the base with "SHAKS" it looks like... can anyone shed any light on whether this is a Quality maker or not???
Thanks in advance people!!!
