Welcome Mabel, you post a seperate thread in here for each weight and we will get back to you soon as possible!

Either upload them onto this site, though the filesize needs to reasonably small, or link to them from here.

Hi Mabel

The age of the Bacchus is circa 1850.

It is the policy of the Glass Message Board not to give specific estimates of value. However, I do offer free advice on ID and valuation through my website (link below), so if you send me a message by email (there is a contact point on my website) I will give you an idea of value (which I am sure will please you  ;) ) .

Don't believe a word of it, it's only worth a fiver ;D I'll send you a cheque now plus another 5 for postage.  ;D

Seriously though that's a very nice paperweight I'm sure you'll be very happy and surprised with Alan's valuation, wish I could find one just sat in a box of bits and bobs.
