To Adelaide, it's about 12 hours difference (give or take a bit dept on who's in daylight savings) - If you ring around 11.00pm at night, you'll be fine. ;D

I am indebted to my friend Anne Tye of Cohesion http://www.cohesionglassnetwork.org/ for the following response to my email:

"Very probably it is the same person.  I heard she emigrated several
years ago. Sally was in fact a silk painter in the first place, and her
work in this field influenced her early work in glass - particularly her
paperweights. I'm not aware of anyone here in the North East who still
has contact with her but will ask around."

Don't thank me, thank Adam!  Thank you very much Adam... I've printed out the pics, so I'll drop her a line.... I am not good at phoning up complete strangers on the other side of the world.

Karelm is right. We've only established that the silk artist in Adelaide may well have been the lady that Adam knew. to properly identify this piece, she will need to see an image of the paperweight, which can't be done by phone.

Karelm, with great respect, I feel a little put upon by your request for someone in Australia to phone this lady. I don't like to make cold calls at the best of times, let alone to someone on the other side of the country.
