Youve done well at £3, but not brilliantly.  Prob worth something like £20 to £25.  Charlton catalogue says £85, but it is way out of date.  I normally half its price then take some more off, more for weights under £100.  Still, its  Colin Terris designed quite early limited edition weight for £3, cant go wrong!  Ohh, edition closed at 630 apparently.........

Hi - the scanned catalogue image on ScotlandsGlass shows a much more "pinky" weight - but colour changes are a typical problem with scanning printed images. Could you possibly take a few more images on white background to show the true colour ... and give us permission to use them on Scotlandsglass ;-) ?
