Hi. The strings of bubbles strongly suggest a John Deacons piece to me.

Hi.  It is quite similar to a PP19, apart from the centre cane, so I think it may be an unusual PP19 or one of the many '1 of 1' or trial pieces they made, and sold through the factory shop.

This could be Perthshire 1995, but is it general range or what ever?
There is engraved on the bottom the number 206,

These canes have been used by Caithness (but this weight doesn't look Caithness to me) and others - like John Deacons (who made the St.Kilda - amongst other names - weights). John Deacons also used a label "Made in Scotland" with a thistle in the centre - before he had his "John Deacons" labels printed. So this definitely is a possibility - but it would be better to see the label.

Hi Ronnie,

I agree with SophieB the canes are very similar to those used in Edinburgh weights. But I feel St. Kilda is also a good possibilty, they also used similar star centered canes.

Do we have proof they were made by Whitefriars though?

Hi  :)
I emailed Bison Concrete this morning...thanks Tim... and heard back from a very helpful surveyor who can confirm that the Bison logo in the slab is the same one used by Bison Concrete in the 1960's. Bison Concrete now use a running Bison with outstretched tail and he pointed out the Whitefriars glass slab bison faces the other direction. I have suggested that a positive impression on the back would produce a negative when viewed from the front which might explain the difference in the direction the bison faces. I have also suggested the slab is actually an ashtray.... not unlike those large ones one we used to see in pubs;a simply depression in the middle so the tile curves down from the edges forming a slight well. Hopefully you can see this in the pic here. One can imagine they were produced in a limited edition for Bison by Whitefriars to grace their executive offices or canteen... or maybe as gifts and certainly between 1959-1970 when Arctic Blue was in use. 1960's would seem right. Once again many thanks Tim & Christine.

Hi there,

Those canes would very similar than the ones in Edinburgh crystal millefiori weights, i.e. the ones made for them by Caithness. So made be your weight is a Caithness product.
