Crown Paperweight ID?
« on: October 30, 2018, 11:42:01 AM »
Hi,

I picked up this small crown weight a few weeks back and still not found a possible maker. It's 5.5 cm diameter and looks similar to Perthshire weights but they have canes or lamp work subjects covering the spot where the canes/twists meets at base. Possibly a factory second as it doesn't seem complete?

It has a slightly rough 'tail' poking out pontil area (doesn't look fire polished)

Anyone any ideas?

Best,

Adam

Could this not be the knob of glass that the glass worker cuts off when he/she is pulling the top of the crown in?
