Hi Don

Thanks. The canes are certainly set low, but the dome shape - if original - looks more like an older piece to me!

Thanks Don - and Happy New Year to you.

That is certainly a respected website. I read the article as saying that the trademark was registered in 1860, but that the first reference to all products bearing a label is not until 1893. So it is a little unclear whether the label was used from 1860 onwards.

Alan

good morning... raining here, so technically it's the wettest day of 2013 :)

.... So to sum-up, the weight has the look of an 1860's example but could have been made anytime from 1860 up to to a period where the Dupont upright profile came into play which was when???
