Hi Dave,

Many thanks for the pictures. Very nice weights.

Sorry, I must have missed this article (or forgotten its content)... I will need to go back over my issues.

Hi Bob
I just remembered some information I should have included in a previous post so apologies for omitting this.

Although virtually all St Kilda weights were signed with an StK cane a few had the name spelt out in full - here is my example. I believe they are rare and I am wondering if any other GMB Members have one ?

Tony Moravec, the Works Manager at Perthshire, brought in some weights his father had made in Bohemia and this is what gave John Deacons the idea for the looped design of this paperweight. I am sure many collectors will have seen this pattern in Bohemian weights

Hmmm,

By looped design, I assume you mean the white "stripes" around the bottom.

I've found this on lots and lots of American Mid-West pieces, (Peacock Glassworks among others), they must have borrowed it from the Bohemians as well.
