Hi John,
             yes, saw both the ceramic weights and the one with roses is now nicely displayed in my collection. Swapped it for a Ditchfield numbered lamp that I had spare.

Cheers,

Tony

I knew you would like it so looked for you , you didnt go for the faceted one then , why not ? i cant remember much about it pray tell me .  like you bad memory . Spelling not to hot either and no time for punctuation my one finger typing is so slow i would fall asleep before finishing . :o i see we have the same spell check bless her . ;D
I picked up a nice large iridescent  weight yesterday a one off by Tim Lazer with certificate signed and label about thirty years old and very much like the IOW summer fruits he studied under some great glassies including Lino Tagliapetro and worked  at the Corning Museum . cheers jp

Hi John,
             the one I picked up at Linton is facetted, 5+1. I thought that both the one's Layna had were facetted. I now have two of these. One with a couple of horses on it and now this one with a rose, oak leaves and acorns. The other one Layna had didn't appeal to me as it was a wedding congratulations one.

Tony
