There's a set of 4 Snowman paperweights - according to Charlton (2nd edition, page 336) commissioned by Doulton Direct - but  Lawleys according to the certificate. All by Willie Bain and LE = 750.
2000 Walking in the Air (your weight)
2001 The Adventure Begins
2001 Dancing in the Snow
2001 (certificate - though Charlton states 2002) Thank You Snowman.

Willie Bain made another two Snowman weights for Lenox USA (Charlton, page 344):
2001 Enchanted Evening (LE = 300)
2002 Cold Nights - Warm Hearts (LE = 150)

Walking in the Air was originally £ 49.98 and estimated (in 2004) £ 50.

Off topic, slightly I couldn't resist showing this completely appropriate Scottish advert.
I don't think it's shown anywhere else.

Hi Sue,
            I love the advert!!! I'm always tickled when someone "takes off" an existing piece to add some humour!

Cheers,

Tony
