The T is the shear mark from the gadget tool dating it to about the 1870's.

The great thing about these weights is that there are so many available it is possible to start a large collection and then write articles about the different types of cane and their colours. And with other features included, maybe periods of manufacture could be suggested within the generic range of "1964 - 1980".

Oh hang on ... Richard More has done something similar but not been able to be period-specific. ;)

Glass Paperweights / Re: Ysart Related?
« Last post by KevinH on Yesterday at 10:39:41 PM »
Yres, it was made by Paul Ysart.

With a "jasper" ground and a clear dome (i.e. not tinted with a shade of grey or yellow), I suggest the later Monart period of 1950s to early 60s. I do not think it would be from Paul's time at Caithness Glass and certainly not into the 1970s.

It is a good find.

Glass / Re: Small, elegant glasses (5), raised pontil, unknown maker

Yes m, the stems are smooth...not facetted.

m/Anne, I've looked at a few VSL works and whilst I cannot find the same cut as on my glasses, I have noted some shape similarities.

Have you any ideas how I may progress with identification?

Thank you again for your help with this.

Yes, gave me that feeling too when I looked through the bottom.  I'm going to try and leave a couple of larger pictures.

Hi Keith, you say ‘no pontil mark’ but if it is Victorian it should have a snapped, ground or gadget marked pontil. If it was a penny lick, you would need an excessively long tongue! As for hygiene, I can’t buy an ice cream in a cone these days without thinking about where the vendor’s hands have been in his hot sticky van.
