Kevin,,,

On the weights n things web site to look at previous sales look at a weight which they have sold on the right hand side of the picture it should have a PDF icon which you can click on my Adobe 6.0 reads it ok.

The one they sold was unsigned, i'm just glad I have come on here and found out some good info about this weight. I have a bit more understanding now of these weights, 3 day's ago I was totally clueless I could of sold it on for £20 to someone who knew what it is actually worth and they would of got a bargain.

Thanks for all your replies, I can understand why people collect these weights some are extremely eye catching and beautiful to look at.  Shame air con was invented you would probaly see a lot more of these in the office on a hot day with the windows open.  :hi:

That's it!! All paperweight collectors to lobby the government to ban air con (not needed in the UK anyway :thup:) saving fuel, and generating more demand from paperweight makers to hold down those piles of papers. Oh, also need a law to insist that all emails have to be printed in triplicate  as well. :24:
The Civil Service should have come up with this years ago, Mr T.

Simples.  :smg:


Sorry, I think its the effect of the drugs I'm on recovering from the cancer operation. All the best. Steve Rowe

Spencer, thanks for the info on the pdf file for those archive weights. And yes, the link worked for me.

Next time I see them, I will have to ask Bernd & Ian if the prices in the pdf files are the actual sale price or the original sales price - which may not have been realised. :)

You can see two unsigned Riedel weights that are currently for sale on William Pitt's US web-site, listed as 'Haida region' under Antique Bohemian; one of them is priced at $600 and the other $700.

I've attached a link here; http://www.wpitt.com/paperweights/indexpwt2.html
