Unusual Strathearn design
« on: July 02, 2012, 12:21:42 PM »

I have a 'flower' style paperweight with a Strathearn label on the base. It came from Scotland with various other Strathearn and Perthshire weights, and so I think it is a Strathearn product. But it is not a design I recall seeing.

It has 6 outer and 4 inner 'petals', and no stamens. A bit like a cross between a Tropic design and an Orchid.  Diameter 2 7/8 inch / 73mm; height 2 3/4 inch / 70 mm.

Is it a one-off?   Anyone any ideas?

its the right shape and base plus label,  could be a fantasy design in strathearns dying days , i'd say not a one off but an experimental piece , but you'd be better off sending a photo to richard more

Hi Ray.

I did send an image to Richard, who said 'It appears to be a standard P4 orchid..'.  I replied saying it looked quite different to me , and had various different features - but I have not heard back.
