  • A rare magnum cobalt-blue & white double overlay cut with a large circular top facet and 10 round side facets to reveal a 5-petalled deep, velvet-blue flower with 3 green leaves rising out of a mottled, translucent pale-amber cushion. (appears black!)According to Dave Moir who worked at Strathearn, most weights of this type were made by himself and...

  • An unusual star design, which shows what the skilled workers at Strathearn were capable of when allowed to make the sort of canes and designs they wanted to make. Cut with a circular top window and 6 oval side facets. Polished, concave base.A certificate - signed by Dave Moir - confirms that he made this weight in 1979, shortly before paperweight...

The design is set on a translucent cobalt blue cushion.Fire-polished...

  • A highly individual note in this attractive weight is the large top window and ribbed faceting.

The predominent tone is blue - relieved with a hint of green, white and pink/red in the centre.Fire-polished base...

Set on a opaque black cushion. Fire-polished...

  • A well set up P-10 pattern with white latticinio twists dividing the rings of colourful canes. The unusual feature is the intricate geometric faceting - which appears to be original.Signed with a red/white S cane and a black/white 70 date cane.

  • The P-10 millefiori design is generally found with 7, 8 or 10 spokes, but seldom with 9 spokes - which is what makes this one rare! (see the article by Richard More in the 2004 PCA Bulletin, page 100). Well made canes - in lemon, orange, dark-brown and silvery tones - set in the usual 1-2-2-3 formation between latticinio twists over clear ground.Signed...

  • The striking feature in this 8-spoke P-10 design are the soft pastel tones of the millefiori canes - aqua, pale-pink, pale-green, white & yellow, pale-green, pale-blue & aquamarine. 8 latticinio spokes separate the 1-2-2-3 cane arrangement over a clear ground. Signed “S” and dated “71" - both in yellow/white tubes. Flat,...
