Hi -
I have owned this weight from new - bought it on a trip to UK in 1993.  However I haven't seen another like it, and don't know how to describe it properly. It is faceted, with 6 side facets  plus top.  It has a central date cane with 1988 and P .
Has 5 picture canes; seahorse, stork, teddy bear, frog and yacht - which has always seemed a strange mix to me - no "theme" that I can grasp!  Base is possibly either scrambled or closepack - I don't know which . Myself I would call it scrambled closepacked - as it seems to be both to me  ;D

Still has its original base label.  Any advice as to whether it has a specific style number or anything would be of interest to me. I have looked on Richard Mores' site and cannot see one there to match this one.
Just noticed I have named these photos wrongly - I resized them to fit on the board - it is definitely Perthshire not Strathearn  :-[
Thanks

That sort of scrambled ground is called 'end of day' in Mahoney and Mclanahan's Perthshire book.

As far as I can tell when they put several picture canes in a scramble they were never themed -just a selection of what they had on hand.

Since Perthshire did everything very neatly, even their scrambles look tidy. :)
I collect Scottish and Italian paperweights and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Is this the PP19 limited edition then?  I believe so, and they would not normaly be faceted would they.
 Roger over and out.

Hi Roger

I have googled PP 19 and found a few photos, but as you said , none were faceted. Also mine seems to have a much more deliberate arrangement of the picture canes - they are evenly spaced around the centre date cane. All the end of day ones I have seen seem much more haphazard than this one to me.

What was the limited edition? mine is not numbered in any way that I can see.

Thanks
