bright sunshine is making the colours look pale and hard to photograph accurately, the base is really a lemony green
is it ?

Definitely a Vasart weight, and I'd say it's early Vasart - from the Ysart Brothers years (1946 - 1955). Probably made by Salvador Ysart.

There do seem to be two groups of early Vasart weights - those with rough finishing to the base and those with better grinding / polishing. This is one of the better ones. Apart from a couple of minor points, the cane setting in this weight is good.

Hi Leni,   :D  
I'm glad you like my new weight, it really does look different in the glass rather than in a photo.  
I also must take this chance to thank you for pointing out this board to me ages ago,   I should have joined way back then   :oops:  :oops:
I hope that you don't mind if I still refer to you as "My friend"  :twisted:  :twisted:  

Hi Kev, Your time and experience are much appreciated, Thanks for identifiying another one for me , Salvador will do fine. :D  :D

Hi Leni,
We have never met in person, only through email,
I hope I wasn't presuming, :cry: :wink:
I first called you "my friend"  a while back over a Perthshire millefiori heart paperweight bought on Ebay which you had wanted but missed bidding on for some reason,  you ended up with it anyway,  :D  :D
Ringing any bells yet  :twisted:  :twisted:
You very kindly emailed me later to congratulated me on my winning a small clichy weight that everybody else had missed  :D   and suggested that I have a look at this board.  I have been ever since, it just took me a while to register. :oops:  :oops:

With all the paperweight addicts on here a Clichy was missed?  :shock:
Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should get used to the  idea.
