Although it is rather frustrating to have to wait what seems a long time for weights that were ordered in August last year, this sort of thing is (unfortunately) not uncommon in the paperweight world.
In June 2002, along with many paperweight club members, I placed an order for examples of three of the very first "Phoenix" (ex-Perthshire workers) weights. It was many many, months before I, and at least a few others, received ours. In fact, by the time I did receive them, I could have bought the same items from several dealers and also through eBay! Mine are inscribed with the year 2002 and are numbers 41, 54 & 56 each of an edition of 75. I wonder if the remaining weights in those editions were actually made before the Phoenix company closed?
Anyway, looking at the setting of the flowers, leaves and stems in Peter's bouquet-in-vase weight, they are really good and equal to the best I have seen of Paul Ysart's work. That design is very difficult to control and also to obtain a pleasing balance of colour and shape. So, even with the wait, I am really looking forward to mine - whenever it comes.
