Ok. That's good. :)

Two things, though ...

1) Can we please see a closeup of the signature on Michelle's weight?
[Yes, I know the signatures are normally very small]

2) Anyone any idea when T.V.G. would have made these?

The two links above to Michelle's signed example are now showing only as a blank page for me. Have the images been taken down?

And, please ... any chance of the extra photos I requested?

Also, I see that Christine's gallery includes a similar weight in Pink. Any more info on that one?

No signature on the pink one either, but it was definitely made in the same place. We might have to wait till Michelle recovers from Cambridge for her pix  ;D

T.V.G Base picture for KevinH

Hi Kevin
great to meet you on Sunday, you friend came over and had a chat about the perthshire weight  ;D
as promised here are some pics of the base of that T.V.G paperweight. Hopefully they are OK, had to talc the base to get the lettering to stand out enough. The photo of the whole weight was taken a while ago.
I will get the photo tent out later and get some better pic in there, if you wanted to use the pictures for anything
I give permission for you to use them in anyway you want
michelle

Excellent, Michelle, thanks.:hiclp:

The signature ties in well with that on a small T.V.G vase I have.

I will merge this thread with the main one about these weights. I will also take a copy of your pics and put them in the Glass Gallery (and update your links to point to them) so we can retain them with the original discussion as proof of ID and for future reference.

I had a blue version of this design some time ago, which had a Teign Valley label on the base - I was never sure whether the label belonged to the weight, but it seems that it did!

I know I'm a bit late joining in, but here is a blue TVG paperweight in the same design we purchased last (Australian) summer from an 'antiques' shop in Ballina, NSW. In my haste, I thought it said TAG, the signature of Tricia Allen Glass - an artist from near Melbourne who died far too young a couple of years ago. It took some time to realise my mistake and figure out what it really said. I'm pleased to see the green and pink ones here.
