Is this a Perthshirepwt or a John Deacons pwt? ID = JD
« on: June 08, 2011, 07:44:24 AM »
Because of the centre cane I have always assumed this to be a John Deacons weight - but the more I look at it the more I am convinceg it is probably a Perthshire weight.  There is no cane or (l)abel on the underside..

Can one of the more expert putme staright and give me an approximate date of manufacture, please.

   Looks JD to me, putting a date on it would be difficult. Perhaps 1990s.
   This is similar but perthshire,1984/1997.           Regards Roger.

Perhaps it is only JD weights that use different colour canes around the thistle? If so, then that will be a way to know if they are JD or Perthshire Paperweights. Perhaps somebody esle can confirm if that is true.

But here is one, much the same, with a John Deacons label to the base:

Thanks to all.  I became suspicious that it might not be John Deacons work because I read the thistle cane had been used in Perthshire Pwts as well.
