Wednesday's child - should she have had an abortion?
« on: April 05, 2006, 11:15:02 PM »
Here's my latest "I haven't got a clue".

Actually I do have an idea - I just thought it was time for a dose of reality after looking at those Allan Scott paperweights.

If I'm right, you can all have fun telling me how bad a paperweight this is!

Looks like Strathearn.

Why the provocative title on this query?

The weight does look a litle 'wonky' and might be considered to be less than perfect.  And you know our present society tends to think we should abort the less-than-perfect   :(   :roll: :evil:

I also thought it was Strathearn or Vasart and said so in my email Don. But Kev's the expert! :D

The colours are nice warm colours - wonderful on this freezing cold day.
Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should get used to the  idea.

Could be either Strathearn or Vasart. Apart from the inner row of canes, I don't see anything really "wonky" about it - I think it's just the angle of the weight in the photo. A straight-on top shot would show it better.
