Recently I have been trying to investigate a "paperweight", which I have, that has always puzzeled me. Strathearn, Perthshire, early transitional Ysart, with no discernable indication as to its maker or age, ( perhaps late 1960's ) ! ?? In old article in the "Paperweights Collection Association", September 2003, by Richard More, he
pointed out some very interesting observations regarding Strathearn, and Herbert Dreier.
The weight was given to me in London by my Cousin more than 30 years ago with two Millefiori "Cone" shaped Inkwells that clearly display a "B" cane, which again is a mystery. I will post photos of those separately
This weight is unusual having a 1-2-2-2 concentric 10 spoke design with a very unusual central cane which I do not believe I have seen elsewhere. It measures almost 3" accross and abot 2 1/2" in height, and for its size "HEAVY" in weight. It is clear without bubbles on a maise yellow cushion.
I would appreciate to learn more about this weight if anyone out there can assist me with an opinion,,,,,,
