Most certainly not!  ;D
That is a quality piece, and I would think Scottish.
Strathearn or Perthshire, rather than earlier, I would think.  :)

Strathearn Aurora?

It looks a little like one I have but the bubbles look different.

I'm absolutely sure it's a real, true Scot.  ;D
I agree absolutely, go with your guts. You have good guts.  ;)

Somebody who knows Strathearn and Perthshire weights should be able to confirm exactly what it is.
Just have a wee bit of patience until they pop in! :)

hello.
i know they will and im a patient chappy its just that whitefriars seems to get all the experts all of a bother on here so maybe thats the quickest means to an end............im still hunting for it myself but as said im no expert on weights......not yet anyways......happy hunting.

I think that's just because wfs is easily recognisable because everything is really well-catalogued, precise ids are easy to find - especially by somebody who has studied the catalogues for a long time and is familiar with them.
Other makers aren't always quite so simple. :)
