Hi Susie, the paperweight is a Vasart or Strathearn and doesn't have any signature canes.

Your best bet if you want to know what year the canes were made is to look at Richard More's Smugmug site, and also look at Kev's site to learn more:

Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should get used to the  idea.
