No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

Millifiori Paperweight ID
« on: March 22, 2012, 11:52:09 AM »
Not really offay with paperweights but on some research I have done, the base is looking Caithness.  The label is too worn and unreadable.  Any ideas please?

Not Caithness, Strathearn I think. Someone else will confirm.
Please try using the attach facility for your pictures so they stay with the thread and don't disappear

Resize them so that the maximum dimension is about 700 pixels. That usually works.

Definitely a daily production Strathearn weight, 1964/5 to 1980.
