pebble paperweight.

Nothing very significant methinks, a little pebble or egg paperweight that i picked up on Saturday for a "bird" song :oops: . I noticed that it was signed on the base edge together with the number 86 probably the year date. I have been doing my utmost with my mediocre digital camera and total lack of expertise to show the name. It has a lustrous sheen which makes it difficult to photograph. Perhaps someone can recognise it from something they have seen before please. Is there no emoticons for really grovel. :D

Hi Bryn,

Frank was just "bumping the thread up to the top" for a second viewing as it had not received any responses.

Unfortunately, I have no idea who made the weight or where it was made. Could be almost anywhere, although East European (such as Poland or Romania) might be likely.

No idea here either, but isn't it pretty!
