Perthshire PP10?
« on: August 28, 2012, 04:28:26 PM »
Now if I've got this one right it's a Perthshire PP10? Although the canes are not quite the same as in The Perthshire book I have.

Still not sure about this one The Complete guide to Perthshire Paperweights lists the PP10 as, each of the 6 clusters having 6 or 7 seven canes around a central cane as this one on ebay does http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251136785279?_trksid=p5197.c0.m619

Mine has only 5 canes around central canes, also the canes and star cut base seem to differ slightly to any Perthshire ones I can find, and there is considerable base wear.

Anyone have any thoughts on this Perthshire or something else?

Further pic below, it does have an internal fine hailine crack.

Thanks
Nick

I think it is a PP10.  For most designs there were variations and the Perthshire book doesn't always list all the variations.  The star cutting on the bottom clinches it for me.

Thanks Allan, the differences from the book's description had me confused.
