I agree with Roy - an ex Paul Ysart (no Python jokes please...).

thank you.  I wondered if it might be.
 I've been trying to work out another paperweight I have that is in this 'spirit' but not the same canes etc. I have been musing whether or not it might be  a Paul Ysart weight or an Ysart/Vasart, or whether it is in fact Strathearn.  Still wondering but I might put some comparison pics on another thread :)
