Between us we could probably combine, and have middle-aged dementia! We'd then know nothing about everything...and we could get a job on Breakfast TV, and many, many other programmes! And be journalists..! Gosh, the world is our lobster...!

The weight has 230 Gramm, dia ca. 6 cm; high ca. 5 cm and a flat, polished ground.
My question was: Whitefriars or Murano?
Perhaps it was not a good question.
Probably it is not Whiterfriars.
But:
- is it Murano?  Y/N
- is it English?   Y/N
Best regards!

Hi Lothar

In my view, it is not Murano. It is most probably English, and was made by an unknown person using Whitefriars canes.
