Paperweight signed JHS and serial numbered
« on: June 11, 2020, 11:56:01 PM »
This white swirl paperweight is of average size and one of many. They have engraved initials JHS, apparent date 87 and a serial number. I have seen numbers 299, 338, 498, 746 and 852 (at least). This frequency suggests a local source, although no collector of Australian studio glass I've asked can identify the maker (or corporate branding, if that is what it is) - despite in some cases also owning a copy! Some of these weights also sport a sticker saying 'Gilbert Oxford JHS'. Can anyone help?

Looks like the photos did not upload initially (or rather did so but with no contents). I've put them into external links below. Perhaps a friendly mod can delete the earlier empty links to avoid confusion.  :)
