No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

I have the weight, not sure it is the right one as base of weight is not marked.
That`s why I was interested to know if anyone had a photo of this weight so I could compare.

Hi - I'm interested in verifying this attribution as well - for the Caithness catalogue on Scotland's Glass.
There is a website "Butlins Memories", where I have enquired. The person running that page couldn't help, but recommended to ask their forum. Would you like to join that forum and ask - or should I try that route? In this case I would need a picture of the weight as well.
Best regards - Wolf
