 :) Hi Gary, my tummy rumbles a little bit towards wfs. The lampwork reminds me of things Leni has shown me that have been made for her using up old bits, although I've not seen this particular bird, the general layout and complex cane surround is fairly typical, isn't it?

As you know, i'm not knowledgeable about wither wfs or pwts, you can ignore me if you like.
I'm only reporting tummy rumbles. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Reminds me of a Pirelli bird that ended up in a Vasart or Strathearn paperweight.  If you have a copy of Angela Bowey's and my paper in the PCA 2015 bulletin.  That was a Kingfisher, this is not, but the lampwork is similar.  I'll see if I can find pictures suitable for posting.  Or maybe Angela will have them.

I do not recognise the cane, but the overall design reminds me of William Manson's work from the 1979-1981 William Manson Paperweights / Scotia period, or 1981 onwards when he was at Caithness Glass.

However, in the William Manson catalogue entries shown in the books I have there is no exact match to a lone Robin on a branch. But there is a 1981 Willaim Manson Caithness Glass design of Robin + branch with flower head, surrounded by a single garland of canes that might be similar.

I mentioned earlier that the bird in the paperweight reminded me of a Vasart or Strathearn paperweight contained a kingfisher lampwork scrap from the Pirelli. 

The story is told in the 2015 PCA Bulletin Article "Pirelli, Vasart, and the Ysart Family" by Angela Bowey and Allan Port.  The source of the information was John Deacons.  John described "how the glassblowers at Pirelli used to throw away the ends of their glass rods which were too short for lampworking into a tea-chest which was later put into the back of George Dunlopís car and brought to Scotland. This glass came from the same suppliers (Plowden and Thomson of Stourbridge) as the glass cullet used at Vasart/Strathearn so it was compatible for use in Vasart and Strathearn paperweights and other products."

I've attached two pictures:  (1) a Kingfisher lampwork creation from Pirelli and (2) a paperweight from Vasart or Strathearn containing a scrap piece of lampwork from Pirelli.
