I have 3 Caithness seconds - This one has been on the board before - a crown weight - link to earlier topic.
Will post the other two separately.
Thank you for reminding us of this thread - but, as suggested in the original thread, this is most likely not a "modified LE" weight (at least I cannot find which one it would be), but a trial piece (colour variation) of one of the early crown weights.
This one has a ring of star canes, with what looks like a partial poinsettia in the centre, green base. Marked C11G to base. Have never identified what it was supposed to be - if anything. Closest I found was a Christmas 1988 commissioned weight
What size is it? Looks to me like a 1988 Miniature Poinsettia (see attached image) - an unlimited design - not finished (facetted).
And this one I have been unable to identify the original pattern - do not think it is an unlimited weight though. A pink wisp of colour with one large front facet, and then has had leaves engraved around the base.
Hope these are useful
A very nice example of a weight with (additional?) engraving (rather than frosting) - unfortunately one of the designs of which (IMHO) too many similar ones are around, making it difficult to determine which one it is (or none of them?).
I would assume, however, that this type of engraving is more time consuming than frosting (experts - please, correct me if wrong), and would therefore not be the method of choice to "modify" a LE weight for sale as second: more likely these would really be practice pieces (and still sold as seconds afterwards).
Thank you, again, JAK !
