No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Unidentified fairly large and heavy paperweight
« on: July 04, 2006, 08:25:01 PM »
Yes me again!  this is another one bought in the 70's or so which has no marks on the base but the people at Caithness believe it may be Chinese.
If you have any ideas I would appreciate it.

Hi again  :D

Not sure about this one.

Could you please try another photo, but without flash (or very strong lighting) - basic (cloudy) daylight could be good. Also using a plain background and, if available, with the camera set on "close up" will stop the camera focusing more on the bacground rather than the weight. If there is no "close up" setting on the camera, try a distance of at least 2 or 3 feet for this one.

Hi Kev

Well yes the blue one was probably bought in St Just in the summer of 76...  do you have an encylopedia for a brain?  Ref the other one, I will follow your guidance and take some more photos.

Are the St Just ones worth anything?  sounds awful to ask but am putting my will together and keeping special things for my daughter and getting rid of the more 'junk stuff'.  

thank you so much for your help

Regards
Linders
