I know this one, Ray, but I just can't think of the name!   :x  It's driving me crazy!  :roll:  I thought it was something to do with a weathervane, but it's not that one  :?  I don't think the actual weight had the etching, if I'm thinking of the right one!

Incredible as it may seem Ray, there is an almost identical weight in my local antique centre with a bit of added engraving on the top.
