Vasart VP9?
« on: October 23, 2017, 03:09:54 PM »
Hi all,

I picked up this high domed 3 row concentric weight last week and I was wondering if it is a Vasart VP9 paperweight? It measures a little over 2 inches diameter & 2 inches high.

Thanks,

Adam

I think the base is fire polished, not ground out, so that would make it a Strathearn P9 weight rather than Vasart.

Note that the P numbers fro Vasart items, as shown in Richard More's site were created by him as references based on the Strathearn numbering for equivalent designs.

Ok thanks for information. I've attached photo's of 2 weights I assumed were older than Strathearn and both have fire polished bases, they must be Strahearn too ?

Yes, I would place those in the (early) Strathearn years too.
