Nothing very significant methinks, a little pebble or egg paperweight that i picked up on Saturday for a "bird" song :oops: . I noticed that it was signed on the base edge together with the number 86 probably the year date. I have been doing my utmost with my mediocre digital camera and total lack of expertise to show the name. It has a lustrous sheen which makes it difficult to photograph. Perhaps someone can recognise it from something they have seen before please. Is there no emoticons for really grovel. :D

Hi Bryn,

Frank was just "bumping the thread up to the top" for a second viewing as it had not received any responses.

Unfortunately, I have no idea who made the weight or where it was made. Could be almost anywhere, although East European (such as Poland or Romania) might be likely.
