Another unknown paperweight
« on: October 22, 2012, 05:16:12 PM »
I picked this one up at the weekend, thought it may have been Strathearn but I can't see it on line anywhere.
Internal black latticino overlaid with small white grains in segmented form, about 55mm diameter with a snapped off pontil mark.
Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance
Nick

Hi Nick,

Like you, it makes me think of Strathearn. I wonder whether it is one of their experimental weights. Have you tried contacting Richard More about it?

Hi Sophie
Glad it's not just me then, no I haven't yet, but think I will unless anyone comes up with another ID.

Thanks
Nick

Hi. I do not recognise it, but I wouldn't rule out people like Langham Glass, or Liskeard Glass. I don't quite go for Strathearn, but I could be wrong.
