Peter McDougall Alphabet Paperweight
« on: April 22, 2013, 02:03:12 PM »
Just thought I would share this unusual weight that arrived today. Peter McDougall closed his studio in 2011 but he had started producing some new designs for 2012 including this weight which is 2" diameter and contains all the letters of the alphabet as well as a PMcD 2012 cane

That's fun. Good one for grandkids to play "find all the letters" with.

Just a shame that the "P" is reversed. :)

Maybe it is a lower case q and the P was left out.  ;)

Not sure whether this is a P cane put in backwards or a Q cane but the practice of putting canes in backwards has been going on for years - take a look at this !
