Help with maker info
« on: August 28, 2011, 02:04:12 PM »
Can anyone help me with a maker identification. I bought a red bubbled paperweight
with ' WEbly England' on the base, but I can't find any info on the maker. WEbly is how it is etched on the base, with two capitals at the beginning. I have googled the name and all I get is either Wembley or Webley rifles.
Thanks in anticipation
