Is this one even a paper weight? it is pear shaped, small ony 60mm high it has no flat surface for standing it up; Mdina or IOW i would think.

And lastly this Selkirk Paperweight 80 mm high, do they attract much interest, ie. selling or collecting.

Hi Paul,

CIIG, is Caithness and marked so as it is a second.  :)

Hi Della

Thanks for that, something new for me to learn. I am wading through a table top full of various glass at the moment, it will take forever, I think, must get on!

Regards

Paul

Simone:
Hi Paul, it's better if you can to get the Caithness firsts, which means that the name Caithness is etched on the bottom.

I don't know the other two weights.
