French, but who made it?
« on: January 26, 2016, 01:30:01 PM »
Hiya All, Here is an interesting weight. All the effort has been put into making a diverse variety of canes, then very little effort has gone into setup and finish.... but I do like the naivety of the finished article. It is squat in relation to a St Mande 90mm x 47mm. There is a broken, unpolished pontil mark. I am drawn to Grenelle, but please advise. Don

Hi Don.  Some of those canes look like Grenelle to me, too.  Whether it is Grenelle, or a piece made using some Grenelle canes though.....  ???
