Article on Strathearn Paperweights
« on: March 29, 2006, 01:19:52 PM »
Just in case it is of any interest, I have written an article entitled "Strathearn's We Rarely See" illustrating 39 rare Strathearn paperweights which will be published in the PCA bulletin in May this year.
I was lucky enough to obtain one of the rarest Strathearn paperweights last year - a clear weight with white lettering STRATHEARN GLASS and I found this was made by Jack Allan soon after the factory opened.
Other weights illustrated in my article are a double overlay spoked weight, double overlay crown etc.

Thanks Gary - I am new to this game and not 100% sure how to get a picture on but I will give it a go and also see if I can include another of the weight I have of a flower form with Vasart canes in it. Keep your fingers ccrossed for me!

Hi Dave,
            i like the Strathearn Glass weight very nice and im sure a very rare weight to have, the other with the Vasart canes in it looks more like a starfish than a flower to me and very unusal( no i havent been drinking or smoking any illegal herbs) it just reminds me of something from the sea

Thanks for your comments Gary - hope the weight didn't make you feel seasick !!
I am told it was probably made as a centrpiece for glassware on display at exhibitions or trade sales that Strathearn attended and in those days these were held in Blackpool.

Hi Dave,
              i stay right at the sea so i dont get seasick, i only get glass sick which is when somebody has a piece of glass that i wished i had hehehehe, anyway maybe it is a sea type thing if they held these exhibitions in blackpool as the canes on the petals look like suckers you get on octupuss ect,

Thanks to you all for your replies - Yes Frank you can use the pictures in your catalogue and No Ray - I have never seen a weight like your bull.
Obviously Strathearns are popular with you all so here is a picture of an unusual concentric.
