Bacchus - Complex Cane - Show and tell
« on: January 18, 2017, 08:44:55 PM »
Dear All,

I was delighted to find this Bacchus weight hiding away in the bottom of a cabinet recently. Firstly though I'd like to express my thanks to Alan and Ray for your support in my quests. :-)

Not the best pictures however show it all.

With kind regards

Andrew

Dear All,

forgot to add...3.5" in diameter and 862 grammes in weight.

For fun and for those who have had the pleasure of reading Alan's paper on Queen Victoria Weights, a different couple to play with too.

I appreciate Glass Messages and you all.

Have fun.

Andrew

Dear Les B and Keith,

thank you; as you can imagine I was somewhat dumbstruck when it popped up in front of me. I have Robert Hall's book so have been well armed with experience of what one looks like. Though this is the first I have held.

Keith,

if Mrs K wants one I notice Selmans in the USA have/had one up for sale in their recent auction.  :-)

Kind regards to you both.

Andrew
