HI all
picked this up in a massive job lot of paperweights yesterday. Ive found 2 websites with the same looking weight one stating its a PP1 the other saying PP6. Also one says its pre 1979 when they started using the P cane on all of these weights the other says pre 1978, I know its a close one but which (if any) is right?
Size is 7.5cm wide
outer to inner row 2-2-1-1 formation 3 centre rows, no P cane on a black (deep purple) ground
As always many thanks
Michelle

OK found another site which says the PP1 has 13-14 spokes PP6 has 12 and that this one (PP6) would date between 1969-1978 due to no P cane

Hi
It looks remarkably similar to the PP1 shown at this link (again courtesy of Frank Andrew's Scotland's Glass site) which only has 12 spokes.

The designs varied within PP numbers, thoroughly confusing of course  :usd:

PP1 was large size (3" = 7.5 cm) and pre-1978 weights had a fire polished base and no P cane; number of twists, colours and canes varied.

PP6 until 1971 was only medium. 1972 to 1977 it was large, same design as PP1 ... but:
- central P cane, and
- base hollow ground.
PP6 was discontinued after 1977, when PP1 became signed and with hollow ground base.

Conclusion: the weight in question is a pre-1978 PP1.
