Late Strathearn
« on: October 14, 2012, 11:50:01 AM »

At the Paperweight Collectors Circle meeting at Knowle yesterday, Dave Moir showed an image of some of the paperweights that he and Herbert Dreier made during the last year or so of production at Strathearn Glass.  He agreed I could reproduce the image. There are some quite unusual pieces.

Incidentally, the meeting turned out (accidentally) to be a bit of a GMB paperweighters convention: we were pleased to welcome Angela Bowey herself, but also KevinH, Tony G, SophieB, jamalpa36, Derek, daveweight, tamefox (and me...).  Any I have missed please shout out!
