Hi everyone.
I purchased this lovely paperweight from a charity shop today but have no idea who might have created it. It would seem to be a limited edition piece as there are the numbers 137 over 195 on the base but no makers name. please take a look.

Hi Max,
I actually thought it looked like a Y, like a plant with red roots, so my my shop instinct was Ysart but Ray tells me it is Caithness. I really love it, I think I will try and collect more now, espetially millefiore :D

Hi Ray,
You are sooo right, what a prat, sometimes the heart does rule the head as the ladies say :oops:
The thistle leaves actually sparkle like jewels so would that rule out adventurine which may be dull in appearence do you think.
I am not sure as I am not actually aquainted with this crystal.
Cheers,
Bryn

Hi Ray,
Is that good news :shock: I did pay £15 for the weight but as I said previously it seemed to ooze quality and I just couldn't resist. I am usually a little more conservative with my speculations :!:  :!:
I have certainly heard the name Manson in respect of quality paperweights and would be delighted if it turned out to be one of his :D
Cheers,
