Help to Id paperweight
« on: August 13, 2013, 07:01:47 PM »
Help please to Id this paperweight. The glass is very dark like early Paul Ysart paperweights but seems to lack the quality.

Diameter 3"

Thanks Roy

Whereas the previous weight was definitely Strathearn , this one is not clear cut.  Some people refer to these as "transition" period in the 1960a when Strathearn, Vasart and Perthshire were all producing similar weights, and sometimes it can be difficult to be accurate. However the presence of the little bubbles in the weight usually points to Vasart
