Bumping this thread to see if gets any more life with this.

Brought the selkirk glass picture frame, ebay item 320934953000, for £2.60  :)  It isn't signed, but has a selkirk glass engraving sticker, instead of the normal selkirk sticker.  Wonderd if anyone knew if this was selkirk or not for definate?

cheers
Ian

In the 2002 and 2003 Selkirk catalogues there are different products by "Selkirk Glass Engravers", designed by Fiona McDiarmid:
1. Candlelights
2. Candleholders
3. Stemmed dishes
4. Shot glasses
5. Paperweights (in 3 sizes) - see attached image
6. Low bowl
No image frame mentioned, let alone depicted - so I would very much appreciate if you could post some better images (than on ebay) incl. of the sticker.

There were 4 designs:
- two "Celtic inspired"
- one "Jazz" modern freestyle arrangement
- one "MacKintosh inspired"

If you "blow up" the MacKintosh inspired design to encompass the image frame it indeed looks very similar.

Personally the label is rather interesting as well.

I can send you better pictures when the weather is better Wuff, or use those under blanket :)

For me the label seals it as being correct, as who would bother to find a label and put it on, for that, and the pattern matches :)

£2.60 bargain I think.  I can see it getting a wedding photo in it in 6 weeks time (we hope, for my mum....)

Here are images of a St Mandé miniature which not only has a nice centre rose cane, but also a garland of alternating blue rose canes and pink ones centred by roses.

^^^^love it.

I'll play.  Here is my buy of the week....nothing overly special per se other than the fact it cost me very, very little.  3 inches, has some light scratching to dome.

Hi. The weight is a Clichy scramble.  These vary enormously from ones with nearly all small cane fragments, through to ones that are nearly all full pieces of cane.  Mildawg's is intermediate - but you can see a Clichy white/pink rose cane in it.

Alan is correct, it is Clichy.  I only have one pic that was taken with my phone and have tried to resize and attached.  Also cropped a section to attach.  It does have five or six rose canes or parts there of in it and some other nice full canes. 

As Alan mentioned there is the white/pink, there is also a white/purple rose on the side that can't be seen.  Next to the white/pink rose there is a full pink/green rose and is what I believe some refer to as a double rose (rose within a rose), on the outside edge there is a quarter of a all pink rose and where the light is shining there is a quarter pink/green.

No signature cane fragments that I can find,  I keep looking hoping one will show up ;D

I just had a response from Peter Holmes about your picture frame:

The image you have sent me of the photo frame, was a development idea that Selkirk had but never really took off. The glass came from Italy, Selkirk just engraved it.
