The one I asked Peter about is the one I own at the top of the thread marked Selkirk glass Scotland 1999 Christine ;D
The one in the eBay link is a different animal made for the seller by Peter on commission at Scottish Borders glass studio to replicate the earlier Caithness Rainbow cascade he made in 1974, apparently for a customer. It is marked on the base Scottish Borders Art Glass 2007
Both items are what they are so on this occasion the eBay sellers  description is spot on :)

They look identical (as near as damn it) and no mention is made of marking, but I'll delete my post

Strikes me you have gone to a lot of trouble Chris to make sure about the true provenance of this weight. I'm sure everybody appreciates this, even if there is little or no acknowlegement.

I also know the seller of the other weight that was specially commissioned,  I have bought many pieces of Selkirk glass from him and found him to be a gentleman in every sense of the word.

Personally, I would not sell this weight without putting a very good realistic start price that won't hurt if it doesn't go higher.  In fact, in view of the special nature of it,  should you be selling it al all?

I don't collect paperweights, but I do have a Colin Terris Designed one called Millennium Vision, a limited edition made in 1999. given to me by my Sister.  I wouldn't part with it for the world.

Rosie, you know I get don't collect glass any more it's far too expensive. I get  pleasure out of finding special pieces for  collectors and the appreciation from them makes me happier than any money ever could.
