Hi Donald,

I would say antique Saint Louis but out of my comfort zone. Others will confirm.

is it possible to please replace your photos with larger versions that measure 600x400 so that the actual canes in the weight can be seen?
many thanks

Bigger pictures would help a lot. The style is rather like Saint-Louis, but it does not look quite right to me from the current images.

Hi Don,

Please confirm whether the images are your own, or are copies of a seller's photos.

If they are copies, and you do not have permission from the copyright holder, then they must not be posted on the board - see the board guidelines on using copyright images.

(I have modified your other thread for the Baccarat weight to provide a link to the French ebay listing.)
