Is this a Scottish weight
« on: March 19, 2012, 04:19:16 PM »
Hi, is this a Scottish weight please, just under 3 inches dia and 2 inches high. 472 gr on a blue ground. There is a concave depression on the base but not polished. There has been a small amount of base grinding to get the p/w to sit correctly.
Many thanks

Malc

Looks very early Strathearn to me, so yes/ Scottish around 1965.
     Hows that for a guess????

Roger's guess is good.

But it could also be a Vasart Ltd (1956 to 1964) weight!

Thanks KevinH, that would be nice if it was an earlier Yasart ltd weight. Still learning thank you all so much.

No such thing - but a few years ago several eBay selllers used "Yasart" in their listings so maybe I am wrong. ;D

Serioulsy though, there's not much difference between many Vasart Ltd weights and earlier Strathearn ones - both as good as each other and both simply a continuation of what was started by the Ysart men.
