Peter McDougall does do lampwork, and so does his son Allan.  However, in many of their recent lampwork weights the lampwork is credited to Karen Maxwell.  I agree with Roger that Peter is better at cane work than lamp work, although IMHO he can do these nice, simple little flowers very well.  Perhaps he just prefers to do the canes, and wisely knows himself what he is best at?   ;)

It's Pertshire (unless the maker was called, 'Phil' or similar) but I've no idea who did the lampwork.

Just had a thought ... Are you sure it's Perthshire?  I suppose it couldn't possible be by Peter Holmes, could it?   :-\

The faceted blue flower weight is definitely a Perthshire Paperweights item - nothing to do with Peter Holmes. :)

Could we all please take care that this thread does not become too complicated. We could end up discussing who made the lampwork in all sorts of weights from all sorts of countries and across many many years.

But maybe that would make for a fascinating (although perhaps rather repetitive) thread. If that happens the thread title would be better as a generic "Who made the Lampwork?" or similar.
