Peter Holmes?
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:14:49 PM »
i love this petite egg/cone weight. Stark, simple, clean lines.

It is signed Peter with a last name unreadable. It's been suggested that its by Peter Holmes, any thoughts?

Hi there, will say I have never seen a weight of Peters like this and he is quite capable of signing much better than that, so I would suggest NO at the moment. But I could be wrong as there is a similarity in signature. Any ideas Andrew?

Thanks Roger,

I do see the similarity on the second (faceted) piece, but certainly not enough to say yes with any certainty.

Bob.

It definitely looks like Peter Holmes to me and the Scottish Borders label seems to confirm this

I think you're looking at the wrong weight - you're looking at the example shown of Border Art Glass, not the OP's.

Could not understand what you ment at first but I can now. Yes the label is 100% correct on mine but thats not what the original question was about for identity of.

I was responding to daveweight, RogerH.

I don't think the facetted egg shaped weight looks anything like Peter Holmes' work, but it would not be beyond him to make something like that. Never say never.

I'm 99% certain that isn't Peter Holmes' work. I do have a couple of weights frosted like that, but they dont have the same base, and it doesn't look like how Peter signs Peter either.
