Hi Roy,
            if we now have 3 examples based on the random garland PG103, do you think Brian's guide is mistaken in suggesting that the P25 was the basis for the issued weights? Seems possible, unless Brian has first hand information to the contrary. Who has a P25 ILN weight other than the one illustrated in Brian's guide book?

Cheers

Tony

PS Roy I am travelling down to Brighton on Tuesday 4th September. Would it be convenient to call in and view "the collection"?

Hi Roy

An IEA cane? Does it relate to the Paul Ysart IEA weights do you think?

Hi Alan

So I don't know the difference between IEA & ILN.

Hope you didn't get too excited at your great age

Well spotted.

Roy

Hi Roy

Not too excited, but when I reach your great age I am sure I will make many similar errors (I make enough now...)! ;D

Last weeks buy which arrived today.  Signed by Chris Buzzini 94, 33 of 40, came from Byrne's auction last week at what I thought was  very reasonable 500 hammer?

At a car boot sale this morning spotted this at the exhorbitant price of 6 picked it up and the stall holder says " nice that, pity it's not an original".
He saw my slightly puzzled expression and said "you know, pity it's not an old French one, its a copy"

"Yes such a shame" says me, "I'll give you a fiver".
Deal done paperweight in bag and away I go.

Ysart brothers 1946-56, a pretty nice example I think, still shame it's not an original ;D

Below are a couple of images of a Salvador Ysart 3D Butterfly I have just acquired.  The (few) others that I have seen had wings made by pulling millefiori canes to shape: has anyone else seen an example with plain coloured wings?

I have seen a couple of other Salvador Ysart plain-wing butteflies.

An example with orange wings was shown by Bob Hall in CPC Newsletter 75 and also in his book "World Paperweights ...", page 129. However, that one may have had the wings made from a simple "tube cane" as there are smudges of other colour visible.
