unknown maker - scottish paperweights?
« on: October 15, 2006, 12:50:35 PM »
And another puzzle for all you talented collectors...

The two larger weights are very much like the perthshire splatter scent bottles - but did they also produce paperweights in this design? I haven't seen any literature to suggest that this was the case...

The swirl is on dark green, whilst the nailsea style weight has a very rough pontil mark and must be english...

To ensure that the pictures stay available whilst we try and identify your weights, can you please add them to GlassGallery and update the links here? If you get stuck with GG just ask for help - remember the link you need for the images after uploading is the one *below* the image in the FILE INFO > URL section.  Many thanks :)
