Is this really a perthshire and if so what type?
« on: April 12, 2012, 03:30:10 PM »
Hi,   I have no knowledge of Perthshire paperweights but picked up this small (50mm diameter sphere) as part of a job lot. It has a Perthshire label to the base as shown in the second photo attached.

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed Perthshire and if so, what type designation it might have.

Yes - Perthshire did make such items: no design number, just referred to as "marbles" - despite the fact that they have a flattened base.
