Paperweight by John Deacons - end of day or scramble - cane to top JD 2011 - nice item - is this unique or are there many the same?

Thanks Adam

Hi Adam
John Deacons makes dozens of these end of day scrambled weights as part of his gift range of reasonable priced weights which regualarly appear on Ebay although I have never seen one with a full signature cane like yours, they usually have ordinary JD cane in them so a nice find

Hi Adam
I posted a reply to you then went into Ebay and found this paperweight 110749980499 it is very similar to yours with a JD 2011 cane and it has a bid of £18.99. There is another one for £22 without the 2011 cane so hope this helps.

Hi Adam

I have one which is a composite of many of his date and signature canes. An interesting piece - but far from unique. I think 'dozens', which Dave suggests, may be an understatement. They are nice to have, but are unlikely to be of any great value ever, IMHO.

Mine cost me £7.99 on eBay a couple of years ago. Perhaps the market is hot!

This one cost me £17. I bought a few spoke JD weights. Most JD weights are quite cheap. He must produce a lot. I see a lot of new ones on eBay.

One J weight went for £60. What are the best Deacon weights to buy?

I think that some of John's nicest weights are the one off J Glass pieces. Some really nice overlays, bouquets and similar. I have a lovely facetted, double overlay bouquet. But as there are few about, and J Glass closed nearly 20 years ago...they are not cheap.

Hi

Thanks for all your feedback - I agree, buy what you like - don't get me wrong I have some nice Deacons weights (see below) its just nothing he is doing right now - but I do see some nice things by him - it's just being patient!

Thanks Adam
