Puzzlement about maker?

Interestingly 5 years ago I sent some photos to a seller regarding both these and he told me they had no real value...


5 years is a long time in Strathearn weights, it is only relatively recently that prices have climbed so fast... about the same rate that published research has been available.

Sorry to the other bidders. But I have been looking for one of these for some time, having lost out on one (at a very good price) because I dithered for too long, wondering where it was made.

Hi all

It's rare and of great beauty :mrgreen: - I was going to bid, then not bid - I would have gone to £400.00 (and been pipped), I think it's worth a lot more than that in so many ways.

Meanwhile - congratulations Kev, well even at that price - I know it will help you so much in your study of Strathearn paperweights, Angus wanted a good home for it and that has certainly happened.

I can't wait to see results of any tests / research you do on the weight (if you do any) posted on your excellent site.
