Hi Sophie

As much serendipity as coup...

All three millefiori are Old English.  Top left is Richardson, top right is one of the group I call 'OE2' in my various articles ( for those not familiar with Old English paperweights there is a brief ID overview on my website here). I am pretty sure that the bottom left is by another unknown Old English maker, from whom I have at least one similar weight with lots of rows of good millefiori. I need to measure the density of all 3 at some point.

Hi Ian,

I was looking at it (but I did not bid, I swear). Yes, it is a nice pansy basket weight. Peter does these baskets supremely well... All my commiserations.

On a better note, lot 543 at Brigthwells in Leominster today, mine for £90 hammer.  Now, who wants to say what PP the perthshire is bottom left?

I can see a PP1 and what looks like a deacons weight, only mystery is the green one in the top row!

I think the Perthshire is a PP12, maybe 1975. The mystery green thing looks like one of those weights best kept as a mystery.... :)

[  :hj: Hmm, looks like a serious overestimate on the hyacinth vases (542), unless they have base marks, and Jules Barbe must be turning in his grave about the misspelling of his name and the Bohemian vase (547)]
