Important Announcement - A New Arrival (Conference weight)
« on: January 04, 2006, 08:54:39 PM »
John is delighted to announce the safe arrival of his Conference paperweight, at 20.50 on January 4th 2006. Both are doing well.
A photograph of the new arrival is attached though I am sure it will look better in natural light.

Inscription on base reads
Outer

"Tribute to Paul Ysart by Peter Holmes Scottish Borders Art Glass 2005"

Inner

"Monart-Vasart Conference 2005"

There is also the issue number as well as the Scottish Borders Gold Sticker in the centre

P.S.  One of the flower heads contains a PH cane.
