« on: December 11, 2012, 09:00:47 AM »
Hi guys
I have seen millefiori paperweight on ebay that has a image of part of a label that has a picture of a hog and the back half of the label reads --the hog ,label looks old and weathered
Has anyone got any thoughts on the maker
Regards
Joe

Hi frank
Thankyou for the info i thought it was most likely scottish but the label was a head scratcher
If you dont mind me asking frank was that label used just for that weight or was the label added by a third party?
Regards
Joe

more likely to be early perthshire - the pastel period

Would think the label is a retailer, but can't find them on google.  It certainly isn't the maker!
