That's interesting, but who I wonder made the flower, its pretty good for a 1969.  I believe Vincent Ysart and Jack Allen were there at the beginning of Strathearn, wonder if one of those two made the flower.
Regards Roger.
Just got a response from Dave Moir:
Quote
These weights were made by Herbert Dreier and myself at Strathearn; we both made petals and we both made flowers. We used to swap jobs so as we did not get bored, and contrary as to what Kevin Holt says, that I never made paperweights, it is time he wised up, and if he is at the Knowle meeting when I'll give my talk in October, I will take great pleasure in making him aware of the fact.

Good to see that input from Dave Moir.

I must have misunderstood what was said at a PCC meeting a few years ago.

Edited to add that I have amended my earlier post. I also add here my apologies for my error.

Dave Moir has added some more info:

Strathearn used three colours for Flower Weights - the following Klaus Kugler Colours:
Türkis-Blau
Dunkel-Blau
Dunkel-Rosa
Klaus Kugler (Augsburg, Germany) had produced rods of concentrated colour for use by glassblowers worldwide. The firm is no longer in production, however.
