Is It Strathearn or is it Perthshire ?
« on: August 09, 2013, 04:00:56 PM »
Hi All
Just acquired this paperweight with a star shaped design, when I saw it on Ebay I thought it was a Strathearn but when it arrived it gave me second thoughts as the canes are quite detailed and I am wondering if it could be Perthshire. I think it is a one off piece and the base is flat and polished.
Any comments please ?
Thanks
Dave

Hi.

I think it could be a trial Scotia 'Star' design - designed by (but not made by) Willie Manson around 1980.

Must admit when I looked at the photo I was puzzled, but your comment makes sense Alan, thank you.
