IMHO that's NOT Whitefriars!  Whitefriars 'Twilight' is a more greeny-grey colour, and anyway I think it's the wrong size and shape for the WF optic rib.  Sorry I don't know who it's by.  



Edit:  Oops John got there before me!  ::)   :thup:

Hello,

The incised marks make it conclusibely NOT Whitefriars. JP is quite right in his observations - this thread needs to be moved to Scandinavian.
