Thanks for the additional information Regan.

Could you please confirm the diameter of the weight.

It's sitting at my grandmother's house at the moment. Will get that next time I'm down. It's approx 3-4 inches I think as it sits nicely on the palm of my hand.

Also Regan did you show this weight about 12/14 years ago give or take a year or two on the older message board as this weight and story rings a bell with me ?

I haven't been on any other forums.  I did email the man who maintains ysartglass.com a few weeks back about it but got no response. Other than that I haven't mentioned it anywhere.

mmmm oh well im sure infact im mega sure ive deen one similar or the same with similar story though it may have been the posters uncle who acquired it , though I kind of remember the person might have stayed south of the border but the weight was here in Scotland or something like that, maybe some of your other relatives could have posted it or it was a different weight altogether but it was a thistle

Highly unlikely to be connected with my family. The paperweight has never left my grandmother's house, it has been with her since her father died. Her brother died in the 50s, his children aren't really online and their children don't tend to visit her.

Hi Regan,

Many thanks for taking the time to post pictures of this interesting and rare thistle weight.

Considering your family history, I thought you may be interested in this Paul Ysart thistle, too.

Thanks Sophie.  This one is made from millifiore canes but is clearly the same design. I've always loved it, it's quirky.
