Collection online
« on: January 23, 2011, 11:37:47 AM »
For anyone interested, who may like to help with identification. Use pictures for their own research etc. I have uploaded pics of the collection we have inherited from my mother. I am still adding information to many. Kindest regards Jos. This link should get you there.

There are sharp teeth there, dripping with saliva, coming to get me - eeeeek.... and by p6, I'm seeing tapeworms... :thud:

Seriously, I do recognise some serious Ysart weights - fish and snakes etc. :thup:

That is a very good collection of weights.

As Sue says, there are some "serious Ysart weights" in there. Paul Ysart weights are my main focus and there are several in your collection that I might covet, if I was a covetting sort of person! I was surprised to see that the double-fish weight has two "PY" canes and that one fish seems to be eating one of those signature canes!

I appreciate that it takes a lot of work to set up and arrange so many photos (I counted about 645) but it would be even better if you could a) remove duplicate photos and b) categorise them all into groups as you have done for "Unknown", "Perthshire" & "Baccarat".

In the "Unknown" group, I can say ...
Number 33/35 = Chinese
DSC_3853/2 = Murano
DSC_3840/39 = Chinese
DSC_3837/6 = Murano (probably)
"10" sticker to base = Chinese
Number 2 = Chinese
The picture weights are unlikley to be able to be attributed to any particular maker. They are usually described simply as "Victorian / Edwardian".

Green-eyed monster.....oh dear!!

Ysarts in abundance at least nine I saw (4236, 4227, 4238, 4251, 4246, 4167, 4116, 4087) although most seem to be Caithness era and later. I really like the double fish 3865.

The Strathearn paperweight 4199/4200 will be of interest to Richard More as it seems to be a Dave Moir experimental piece from the late 1970's. Nice to see its faceted too.

Nice modern Baccarat/St Louis - esp the overlays.

The eight antiques I noticed are very nice quality too!
