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. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Hiya and welcome!
This looks Scottish to me, possibly Strathearn. Somebody else who knows more will confirm, I'm sure.

Could we ask you to please post your images directly to the board? It's very easy and it means that images do not get lost or disappear from the board and so lost as a reference for the future.

Loads of techie info and board stuff here:-

It can also help folk a lot if you can come up with some title which describes the item a bit - so that it can be found.
(I imagine there must be around 5,000 posts entitled "id please")
Cheers, Sue (M)

And beautiful images they are.  :)  Thank-you!
I imagine your weight will be identifiable from its appearance - but normally, an image of the base of a piece is incredibly helpful for id.

This is a standard daily production weight from Strathearn Glass, made 1964 through 1980.

Sue is correct that a base shot often helps with paperweight identification, but in this instance the "chunky" twist canes and the overall look confirm the ID.
